In many countries, we work with religious leaders to educate communities on the benefits of modern contraception. Religious leaders are influential and trusted members of their community and can play a crucial role in dispelling myths about contraception, gaining support for family planning, and providing information on how to use and access services. With funding from the UN Foundation, Marie Stopes International sent out local photographers in Mali, Tanzania, Uganda and Yemen to capture photos and interviews with faith-based leaders as they engage communities in conversations about family planning.
