President Obama Lifts the Global Gag!

EngenderHealth is thrilled to announce that President Barack Obama has rescinded the Global Gag Rule!

Thanks to all of you who signed our petition and made your voices heard. Your involvement and commitment paid off.

This is only the first of many positive changes to come, and there is still much work to be done to advance sexual and reproductive health. EngenderHealth has identified the top 5 actions for the Obama Administration, including investing more in international family planning programs, which remain severely underfunded. We will be mobilizing around this and other reproductive health priorities in the coming months. Stay tuned!
