Press Release

Don’t miss E2A in Addis Ababa!

Evidence to Action (E2A) staff members taking part in the upcoming International Conference on Family Planning are ready for a full three days (November 12 – 15) packed with their own presentations as well as opportunities to learn, exchange information and grow valuable relationships with their fellow family planning experts. E2A presentations, which include those that are part of larger panels, poster sessions, and roundtable discussions, will touch on our four focal technical areas—service delivery strengthening, scaling up best practices, youth, and integration—and will describe some of the learning we have generated as a project during our preliminary years.

Please come visit us at our booth in Tent 1 of the African Union Conference Center, where we will have a series of new technical briefs showcasing results from our four-country assessment of postabortion care programs in West Africa as well as other materials. Full details about our conference presentations, including times and locations, are listed on our conference presence flyer. A more general description is also found below.
