Community health: Empowering people to make their own reproductive health choices (2015) Blue Ventures Conservation
blueventures.org/impact/publications/

We work with some of the world’s most isolated coastal communities, whose access to health services is severely limited. In direct response to the unmet family planning needs of Madagascar’s semi-nomadic Vezo fishing communities, we have developed a community health programme which upholds their reproductive rights to freely choose the number and spacing of their births. This initiative is known locally as Safidy, meaning “the freedom to choose”.
