To commemorate World Contraception Day on 25th September, C3 organized a ‘virtual dialogue’  which focused on ‘Improving Information and Access to Spacing Contraception for Family Planning among Young Populations in Bihar’.  A part of C3’s ‘NayaDaur’ initiative to address issues around family planning, the webinar emphasized the importance of using short-term spacing methods of family planning, and how young couples need better access to information and services that will encourage them to opt for these short term spacing methods. We were joined by an illustrious panel that included government representatives like Dr. Mohammed Sajjad, SPO – Family Planning, State Health Society, Bihar, who shared the steps the state government has been taking to prioritize contraception. The panel also had Dr. AbhijeetArun Pathak from BMGF India, Dr. William Joe from the Institute of Economic Growth, Dr. Vikash R Keshari from The George Institute for Global Health and Ms. Padma B from SRU Care, Bihar. The webinar had more than 200 attendees.
