Women and girls in developing countries face a constellation of reproductive
health challenges: high levels of unmet need for family planning, high rates
of unintended pregnancies and maternal death, and a burgeoning HIV and AIDS
pandemic.  Panelists will discuss why investing in comprehensive sexual and
reproductive health and rights is urgently needed and how the U.S. can
strengthen holistic, human rights-based care overseas that breaks down the
divisions among HIV/AIDS, reproductive health, and maternal and child
health.

This event is free and open to the public.  Light refreshments will be
served.
