STORIES FROM THE FRONTLINES
FAMILY HEALTH OPTIONS KENYA
Family Health Options Kenya (FHOK) is one of the leading providers of reproductive health services in the country. For over fifty years, they have provided their clients with comprehensive care. FHOK refused to sign Trump's Global Gag Rule because they will not deny their clients access to the full range of medically accurate information. Subsequently, they lost their U.S. funding, forcing them to shutter the doors of clinics serving Kenya's most vulnerable communities.
FAMILY PLANNING ASSOCIATION OF NEPAL
The Family Planning Association of Nepal (FPAN), a member association of the International Planned Parenthood Federation, is Nepal’s first national sexual and reproductive health service delivery and advocacy organization. FPAN works across 37 districts to provide critical health services to poor, marginalized, socially excluded, and underserved communities. As an organization that believes access to comprehensive reproductive healthcare is a human right, FPAN refused to sign Trump's Global Gag Rule.
