Future Policies and Practices to Promote Women’s Health

  • Leila Mehra


First of all I should like to thank the organizers of the Christopher Tietze International Symposium for the privilege of delivering this closing keynote address. It seems quite appropriate that all of us who had a great regard for the late Dr. Christopher Tietze should be gathered here at this Symposium to honor his memory. Dr. Tietze will always be remembered for his internationally recognized work in the field of family planning, in promoting women’s health and well-being through their right to and access to family planning. Further, we all recall his great friendliness and willingness to help those working towards this goal.
