More than 800 women and girls die every day from complications in birth and pregnancy.

On 11 July leaders from around the world are gathering in London with major donors like Bill and Melinda Gates for a Family Planning Summit. The Summit aims to help women and girls better plan their families and their futures by helping them access sex education and health services.

Australia has a critical role to play but our government needs some urgent encouragement. 

We know that sex education and health services save lives and give women and girls the power to decide when and how many children they have. Yet the amount Australia gives to help women and girls access these services in the world's poorest places has been slashed - it's now only half what it was in 2013/14.

Ask Foreign Minister Julie Bishop to reinstate this life-saving funding and pledge an additional $10 million a year for the next three years at the London Family Planning Summit.

 

This action is a joint initative of the International Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights Consortium
