  • Why Family Planning? FP ties into all MDGs especially: Target 4A: Reduce by two thirds, between 1990 and 2015, the under-five mortality rate Target 5A: Reduce by three quarters the maternal mortality ratio Target 5B: Achieve universal access to reproductive health Christian organizations are uniquely poised to provide family planning services and counseling: The truth is that FBOs have been providing health care and even family planning for decades. They provide anywhere from 30-70 percent of all health services in many African countries, and this is especially true in rural and remote areas where government services do not always reach. * “The secular community can provide technology and services, but the religious community can get to the values behind who’s making the decisions, the power relationships in the family, and the dignity of women,” Dr. W. Henry Mosley, professor emeritus in Population, Family, and Reproductive Health at Johns Hopkins University. **http://www.impatientoptimists.org/Posts/2012/04/Do-You-Know-Where-FaithBased-Groups-Stand-on-Family-Planning

  • Faith to Action and the Interfaith Nairobi DeclarationIn 2011, CCIH joined forces with DSW (GermanFoundation for World Population) and Indonesian-basedMuhammadiyah to work on a project called Faith to ActionConsultation in Nairobi with a global, interfaith team offamily planning expertshttp://www.dsw-online.org/interfaithCCIH has been working to get more faith basedorganizations to endorse this declaration; currently wehave over 200 organizations, both secular and faithbased, that have signed on in solidarity with us
  • Interfaith Nairobi DeclarationWe, leaders of religious institutions and faith based organizations (FBO), believethat health is a universal value held by all faiths and a universal right for humanbeings.Our faith traditions, spiritual values and commitment to social justice lead us to believepassionately that families should not suffer needlessly because they lack access tohealth services.We acknowledge the evidence that the health benefits of access to education andservices, and thereby averting unintended pregnancies, can be substantial. Each yearlack of family planning services and education in developing countries results in anestimated 600,000 newborn deaths; 150,000 maternal deaths from abortion and otherpregnancy-related causes; and at least 340,000 children lose their mother.We recognize the importance of access to information about and services to enablefamilies to plan the timing and spacing of their pregnancies consistent with their faith forfamily well-being, for achievement of country health targets and to support achievementof the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015.We respect the choice of families based on their own faith and needs and know thatstronger, healthier and thriving families and communities result when couples jointlyplan their families.In this Declaration, we commit to leveraging our networks to support family
