A Woman in the Democratic Republic of Congo Holds Her Set of CycleBeads

More than 26% of women in the Democratic Republic of Congo are not using a modern family planning method even though they want to avoid pregnancy. In a recent article, a program manager from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) described his experience in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and how CycleBeads as a non-hormonal family planning option is helping to address the unmet need there.  The article highlights how this simple fertility tool can help address family planning issues in a complex cultural environment where views around family size, gender roles, and contraception in general have made it difficult for programs to offer family planning and reproductive health services.
