Annual Report 2015-2016 > Education & Training
We are training providers in Puerto Rico to offer women the full range of birth control care—a critical way to reduce the impact of Zika virus—and helping to develop US guidelines for family planning care in the context of Zika.
- Our training programs have prepared more than 5,800 providers to offer evidence-based abortion care, creating the next generation of US women’s health care experts.
- To reduce illness and death among mothers and babies in Bihar, India, we partnered with PRONTO International and CARE India to train over 2,200 providers in basic emergency care.
- Innovating Education in Reproductive Health’s course on abortion care has been viewed over 10,000 times by learners in 150 countries.
To learn more about our programs working in contraception, see Beyond the Pill, California’s Family Planning, Access, Care and Treatment (PACT) Program, Family AIDS Care & Education Services (FACES), the Fellowship in Family Planning, and the Kenneth J. Ryan Residency Program.
To help us continue to expand birth control options for women in the US and around the world, make a gift to the Bixby Center.
