Leadership Development for Mobilizing Reproductive Health (LDM)
From 2000-2011, the Leadership Development for Mobilizing Reproductive Health (LDM) program, generously funded by the David & Lucile Packard Foundation, supported leadership development opportunities for reproductive health leaders who lived and worked in the poorest regions of Ethiopia, India, Nigeria, Pakistan and the Philippines.
