Institute for Reproductive Health, Georgetown University

Mission / Vision
Since its founding in 1985, Georgetown University’s Institute for Reproductive Health (IRH) has contributed to a range of health initiatives and is dedicated to helping women and men make informed choices about their reproductive health. In particular, IRH’s work focuses on: developing, testing and implementing simple and effective fertility awareness-based methods (FAM) of family planning, including the Standard Days Method®, TwoDay Method® and Lactational Amenorrhea Method, fostering fertility awareness among young adolescents (ages 10 to 14) in the context of self-worth and respect for others, and reducing stigma and discrimination to improve HIV prevention and care.
