Hi there!

Great to see another exciting woman gracing the PulseWire community with her presence!

I'm so happy to hear that you are interested in reproductive health and family planning, which are two areas in of expertise with which I also have research and professional experience. I encourage you to take a chance to meet other women from all over the world with similar interests by perusing other members' profiles and getting comfortable in this amazing online community by browsing all of the categories under the PulseWire tab in the top navigation bar.

I'm very much looking forward to your future words and ideas!

All the best,

Hi,Katherine,thanks a lot for your inspiring thoghts.

It's been a sensitive issue here in P.I. because we belong to a "religious country" they said.A contrast coz a lot of corrupt officials.Efforts done by non- government organizations(NGO) who have limited resources to dessiminate information regarding reproductive health rights and family planning but religious/conservatives/politicians groups uses black propaganda to control such initiative.Women once given the proper information about these matter for sure will be enlighten and will decide for themselves.
I am so sorry that I can't fully share my talent and skills to propagate our agenda because I don't have the capacity to belong to a group werein the reproductive health issue are priority.I just do the sharing individually in my little way.

It's my long wish to share my knowledge on family planning and reproductive healths rights to more women in poor community because they don't have the enough access regarding these matter.I can say this because i'm experience implementing it to myself and proven that it will really help a lot if given the chance.Yes,I'll follow your suggestion and thanks a lot.

More wishes to you.
