London Family Planning Summit – Global Bloggers Report

At the London Family Planning Summit, I joined a group of bloggers from around the world. They were from activist blogs, charity blogs and blogging fora. Before and after the summit their work was added to by those who could not attend, but who observed the Summit from afar.

It is interesting to read the other blogger’s work, and to see what their impressions of the Summit were.
