The Challenge Initiative – A New Model for Urban Reproductive Health
The Challenge Initiative is led by the Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The Initiative represents an exciting new approach to providing life-saving reproductive health and family planning information and services to individuals, families and communities, building on the demonstrated success of the Gates Foundation’s Urban Reproductive Health Initiative (URHI).
