This piece was submitted to the Washington Post in response to the referenced article. The Washington Post declined to publish it. Other contributing authors were Mousse Fall, an imam with the Network of Islam and Population in Senegal; Papa Abdoulaye Faye of the Senegalese Association of Journalists in Health, Population, and Development; and Awa Cheikh Seye Ndiaye of IntraHealth International. 

Since 2000, IntraHealth has worked closely with the government of Senegal to develop the country’s family planning policies and programs. Through a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, we work closely with religious leaders, journalists, and other members of civil society to ensure women and their partners have access to high-quality family planning information, services, and contraceptives.
