National Institute for Reproductive Health Releases First-Of-Its-Kind Initiative to Evaluate and Lay a Blueprint for Advancing Reproductive Health, Rights and Justice Policies in Cities
On October 18, 2017, the National Institute for Reproductive Health (NIRH) released the Local Reproductive Freedom Index, a first-of-its-kind initiative to evaluate the reproductive health, rights and justice policies of 40 U.S. cities including Louisville, which received 1.5 out of five stars.
Marcie Crim, Executive Director, Kentucky Health Justice Network said “We’re lucky to have some elected officials in Louisville who support reproductive freedom, but we also know there’s a lot more work that needs to be done. With the Local Index, we now have a roadmap of how our city can improve the reproductive health and lives of city residents.”
