Global WACh Working Groups provide a space to bring faculty, students and professionals together to share ideas, projects, and build collaborations aimed at improving the global health of women, adolescents, and children.

Family Planning Working Group

This working group aims to serve as a resource for those interested in both domestic and international family planning research by providing a forum to create new collaborations and a resource for graduate and medical students, residents and fellows looking for research projects in the field of family planning. The working group critiques work, makes informal presentations about ongoing research, reviews CRFs, and provides other general research assistance. It also creates bridges between domestic and international researchers that may result in global-to-local initiatives.
