Works to ensure that the population and health policies of international institutions supported by the United States government actively promote women's sexual and reproductive health. CHANGE takes its mandate from the Programme of Action of the 1194 International Conference on Population and Development, and other relevant agreements that call upon governments and international agencies to achieve these same objectives. Specifically we seek to translate the language of these documents into practical, operational and measueable within and across the areas of family planning, STDs and HIV, and gender violence.
