Uzhgorod brides joined the campaign "Plan your family's health"
About a hundred girls who participated in this year's Transcarpathian Parade of Brides joined the project "Plan your family's health!" which has been held around Transcarpathia since April.
The girls wore on their wrists colored bracelets to attract attention, especially that of young people, to the importance of reproductive health, family planning.
The purpose of the "Healthy Women of Ukraine" program is to facilitate the reproductive health of women and couples of Ukraine by improving the use of modern and effective methods of contraception as an alternative to unintended pregnancy and abortion. In order to reach this goal, the Program works with Ukrainian NGOs, supporting their initiatives to change people's attitudes and enabling policies at the national and local levels, as well as strengthening their organizational capacity.
