Using Ethiopia as its central case study, "The young continent" highlights the nation as one of the most successful in Africa in terms of driving demographic change. The case study also demonstrates that strong, coordinated family planning initiatives, backed by government action, have been – and continue to be – at the forefront of that drive.

MSI is honored to have worked with the magazine’s finance editor on the feature, which delivers vital messages about the value of investing in contraception in Africa and around the world.
