The Global Gag Rule and Contraceptive Supplies


Around the world, demand for contraceptives and condoms has never been higher — due to population growth, rising popularity and use of family planning services, increasing prevalence of HIV infection, and the largest-ever cohort of young people moving into their reproductive years — and yet funding for contraceptives has not kept up. The Global Gag Rule exacerbates this growing shortfall in reproductive health supplies at a time when they are desperately needed for contraception and HIV/AIDS prevention.

The loss of U.S. donated contraceptives to key family planning NGOs overseas because they rejected the Global Gag Rule restrictions, has sparked a crisis within a crisis.
