  • Title: Population and Reproductive Health « Packard Foundation
    Descriptive info: Population and Reproductive Health.. The Population and Reproductive Health program funds innovative work that addresses population growth and promotes positive reproductive health.. Our goals are to slow population growth rates in high-fertility areas, and to ensure individual reproductive health and rights in order to improve the quality of life for more people.. We prioritize women, girls, and young people because of the disproportionate impact of poor reproductive health on their lives.. Today, more than 200 million women worldwide want access to modern contraceptives but cannot get them.. Annually, nearly 350,000 women die because their pregnancies are too soon, too close, or too many, or happen in unsafe conditions.. In places where the status of women and girls is low, they are more likely to give birth at very young ages, to have high fertility rates, and to have poor health outcomes as a result.. To make positive reproductive health a reality for more people, our strategies focus on:.. Mobilizing policies, resources, and political will at the global, regional, and country levels to cultivate a climate that advances and protects family planning and  ...   our geographic focus that improve educational attainment for vulnerable girls, expand leadership and economic opportunities for women, and redefine community priorities to support the ability to make positive reproductive health choices..

  • Title: Children, Families, and Communities « Packard Foundation
    Descriptive info: Children, Families, and Communities.. The Children, Families, and Communities Program strives to ensure that all children have the opportunity to reach their full potential.. Our grantmaking strategies address two interrelated and fundamental needs that must be met for children to thrive: health and education.. While most middle-class children will be blessed with community, public, and family resources to help satisfy these basic needs, too many low-income children are uninsured, do not attend high-quality preschools, and have little opportunity to learn and grow in the hours after school and during the summer.. Access to appropriate health care, to high-quality early learning, and to enrichment opportunities that are aligned with school are all evidence-based means of improving the life trajectories of low-income children.. California alone represents 13 percent of the nation’s children and 21 percent of California’s children live in poverty.. While we concentrate most of our resources in California, we also work in other states and, across our subprograms, at the federal level.. In this context, we focus on preschool, after-school and summer enrichment, and children’s health insurance.. Across our work, we support:.. Public policy reforms.. Systems improvements.. Research (very selectively).. Communications and advocacy, and.. Constituency development..  ...   early education policy.. This focus stems from the Foundation’s broader interest in early childhood education, birth through third grade.. Children s Health Insurance subprogram.. , we also work to ensure that all children receive appropriate health care by creating nationwide systems that provide access to health insurance for all children.. We work in over a dozen states and at the federal level.. Our third subprogram,.. After-school and Summer Enrichment.. , aims to strengthen California s public commitment to school-based, after-school programs, while also spurring the expansion of these programs into summer.. Such expanded learning opportunities that are aligned with the school day promote positive youth development for elementary and middle school children.. The Foundation emphasizes literacy, good nutrition, and out-of-door experiences in these expanded learning settings.. Here, too, we work at the federal level.. Teaching the Teachers.. In 2006, California after-school programs grew rapidly, increasing by 400 percent in the state’s elementary and middle schools.. This tremendous and beneficial expansion had a downside, however, as programs struggled to maintain top quality programming and staff qualified.. Additional Resources..
