Please join us for the upcoming Global Evidence for Egypt spotlight seminar on fertility and family planning, which will focus on what global evidence tells us about promoting healthy behaviors and encouraging family planning to curb population growth in Egypt. This seminar is co-hosted by J-PAL Middle East and North Africa (MENA) at the American University in Cairo and UNICEF Egypt, supported by Allianz Egypt.

This seminar is the fifth in the Global Evidence for Egypt Spotlight Series, which brings together Egyptian policymakers and researchers in the J-PAL network in a discussion about how to tackle priority policy issues in Egypt. During each seminar, policymakers highlight a particular development priority in Egypt, and researchers offer evidence-informed insights for improving policy and program design from a global perspective. Together, the panel of policymakers and researchers ground the evidence in the Egyptian context and explore possible policy solutions.

The event will foster a conversation on Egypt’s policy priorities and the relevant global evidence to provide insights on how we can promote healthy behaviors and encourage family planning in Egypt.
