The Bixby Center for Population, Health and Sustainability is dedicated to helping achieve slower population growth within a human rights framework by addressing the unmet need for family planning. The Center seeks to improve the health outcomes of world’s poorest and most vulnerable women and their families.
Worldwide there is an unacceptably high unmet need for family planning due to considerable barriers that prevent women from accessing contraception. Meeting this need will make possible a healthier, more prosperous, ecologically sustainable, and less divided world.
We are a collaboration of students, faculty, researchers, and staff working to address the critical impact of population on global public health and the environment, located at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health.
