Laos: UNFPA reaches women in remote villages

In Laos, where about 70% of the population live in rural and remote areas, community-based distribution workers, or CBDs, bring contraceptives and reproductive counselling to women. Twenty percent of women here are interested in spacing their children or avoid pregnancy altogether. Without CBDs access to contraceptives and healthcare advice would be impossible.
