Global Family Planning Goals and Measurement: Where Are We Now?
In this webinar, Scott Radloff, senior scientist at the Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health, and Emily Sonneveldt, director for the Center of M&E and Advocacy at the Futures Institute, describe how mobile technology is being used by local data collectors in Africa and Asia to generate rapid-turnaround data, and how this information is being used in tandem with modeling that leverages service statistics to measure progress across 70 countries in meeting global family planning goals. Susan Rich, vice president of International Programs at the Population Reference Bureau, moderated the webinar. Their presentations were followed by 15 minutes of Q&A.
The Hopkins Population Center and PRB’s Center for Public Information on Population Research co-hosted this webinar with funding from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.
