Advance Family Planning partners Marie Stopes Bangladesh, the Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health, and Team Associated led a four-day media advocacy workshop for Bangladeshi advocates and journalists. Sixteen participants—representing national and subnational advocacy working groups, local media houses, and civil society organizations—convened to strengthen communication and advocacy skills and draft new media advocacy action plans to complement AFP's policy advocacy efforts.
