Web event rethinks family planning: April 5th
TEDxChange, a partnership of TED and the Gates Foundation, was created to spark global conversations about social issues. An event in Berlin this Thursday TEDxChange: The Big Picture, will challenge traditional thinking around a critical global issue — contraception.
Speaking at the event, which will be webcast live, Melinda Gates will kick off a long-term initiative to change the global conversation around family planning, leading up to a major global summit on family planning in London this July. FCI is a partner in the global coalition supporting this campaign.
