Interfaith Declaration to Improve Family Health and Wellbeing
We, leaders of religious institutions and faith-based organizations (FBO), believe that health is a universal value held by all faiths and a universal right for human beings. Our faith traditions, spiritual values and commitment to social justice lead us to believe passionately that families should not suffer needlessly because they lack access to health services.
We acknowledge the evidence that the health benefits of access to education and services, thereby averting unintended pregnancies, can be substantial. Each year lack of family planning services and education in developing countries results in an estimated 600,000 newborn deaths; 150,000 maternal deaths from abortion and other pregnancy-related causes; and at least 340,000 children lose their mothers.
We recognize the importance of access to information about and services to enable families to plan the timing and spacing of their pregnancies consistent with their faith for family well-being, for the achievement of country health targets and to support or achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015.
We respect the choice of families based on their faith and needs and know that stronger, healthier and thriving families and communities result when couples jointly plan their families.
In this Declaration, we commit to leveraging our networks to support family health by providing education and services that enable families to plan the timing and spacing of their pregnancies consistent with their faith. We call on others to support this initiative to influence government and donor policies and funding.
