The Family Planning Summit in July 2012 will launch a global movement to provide an additional 120 million women in the world’s poorest countries access to life-saving and life-improving family planning information and services. The Population Reference Bureau plans to develop tools to illuminate the concept of unmet need for family planning to strengthen global and national support toward a more concerted effort to break down the barriers that limit demand for and uptake of services.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of Counting Women's Work
This grant will support the Counting Women’s Work project that seeks to estimate the age and gender dimensions of economic activity, including unpaid care work, and create indicators that are amenable to policy analyses. The Population Reference Bureau, partnering with the University of California at Berkeley, will provide technical assistance and grants to five African research teams to measure the production and consumption of women’s unpaid care work and its effect on economic growth. Teams will develop research-to-action plans that model potential post-COVID-19 policy solutions, engage in-country stakeholders, and include national statistics, economic planning, labor units, and advocates to promote evidence use.
