(April 2010) "Generations on the Rise in Pakistan" is an ENGAGE multimedia presentation that examines the important link between high fertility and the health of women and children, highlighting improvements in family planning use over time as well as the gaps in implementation. Focusing on the high level of unmet need for family planning, it presents the many costs and consequences of high fertility and unplanned pregnancies. The presentation underscores how increased family planning use can lead to improvements in the health and well-being of Pakistani families.

"Generations on the Rise in Pakistan" was developed by PRB in collaboration with the National Committee for Maternal and Neonatal Health (NCMNH) and a local task force comprised of experts in family planning and reproductive health. This presentation is available on request, and a presentation guide is also available to provide facilitators with the skills to effectively deliver the presentation.
