Family planning is important for the health of mothers and their children as well as for the family’s economic situation.
Health Minister Rosy Akbar says access to family planning is essential to improve an individual’s health education and economic well-being particularly for women and girls.
Akbar says it also helps save many women by ensuring their babies are not born premature.
” Men and women should be informed about and have access to safe, effective, affordable and acceptable matters of family planning of their choice. Everyone has the right to health care services which enables women to safely go through pregnancy and child birth.”
Akbar says this plays a vital role in strengthening national economic performance by reducing health and education cost.
The Minister adds it will also enable women to contribute equally to social and economic developments.
