A midwife teaches post-partum mothers the use of Cycle Beads for the Standard Days family planning method at Jose Fabella maternity hospital in Manila September 12, 2012. The Standard Days Method is a fertility awareness based family planning method that identifies a fixed fertile window for women. Pitting himself against the teachings of the country's powerful Catholic church, Philippine President Benigno Aquino, a Catholic like 80 percent of the population, has thrown his support behind a reproductive health bill that will, if passed, guarantee access to free birth control and promote sex education.

In South America's poorest country, only 10 percent of women get pap smears, a common way to screen for cervical cancer, fewer than half receive prenatal care, and in rural areas only 30 percent have a trained birth assistant. [As a result, Bolivia has the highest rate of maternal deaths during pregnancy and childbirth and the highest infant mortality rate of any other country in the Americas except Haiti.
