Con Las Manos Vacias: Delivering on the Right to Contraception

Infographics and Videos

Too often, Latin American women go to a clinic for contraception, but they leave con las manos vacias — empty handed. When they return to the clinic, it will likely be for prenatal services.

More than half of pregnancies in Latin America and the Caribbean are unplanned, due in large part to the lack of family planning methods available to women.

Con Las Manos Vacias was produced by a partnership between PAI and the Reproductive Health Supplies Coalition. Thank you for watching.

Share this video to spread the word: saying family planning is a priority isn’t enough, it’s time to make sure contraceptive supplies make it into the hands of women.
