The Human Rights Approach to Family Planning

How young adults choose when and if they will have children and how they navigate this decision process.

This project is collecting qualitative data on how young people in Denver, Colorado, USA and Chengdu, Sichuan Province, China choose when and if they will have children and how they navigate this decision process. During the summer of 2017, we collected data from 10 participants in each country. We are awaiting decisions on grant funding that would enable us to extend this project in both communities to 20 additional participants in each country. This funding request is in collaboration with Dr. Zheng Li, Sichuan University and Lindsay Reed, MSW Candidate, University of Denver.Community Partner 1: Having Kids
