In a nation awash with guns and with one of the world's highest murder rates, Venezuela's hugely successful classical music program, known as "El Sistema" (The System), has for decades sought to counteract poor children's exposure to violence with the gentle and inspiring influence of classical music. It used to only admit children aged at least 5.

Two-hour old daughter (R) of 17-year old Nakor rests with the other new-born baby at a hospital in Chiang Mai's Fang district October 2, 2012. Thailand has the second highest rate of teenage pregnancy in the world, according to Thai government data. A World Health Organization (WHO) report shows the average number of pregnancies for every 1,000 girls in the 15-19 age group is 65 but that figure rises to 70 in Thailand. Teen pregnancy and early child marriage are among the major obstacles that deny the rights of 75 million adolescent girls worldwide to education, says Plan International, a development charity that works with communities in 45 countries to alleviate child poverty. The first U.N. declared International Day of the Girl will be marked on October 11, 2012 with a focus on rights of the girls around the world. Picture taken October 2, 2012.

Nami, a 17-year old mother, cares for her one-day old baby at a hospital in Chiang Mai's Fang district October 1, 2012. Thailand has the second highest rate of teenage pregnancy in the world, according to Thai government data. A World Health Organization (WHO) report shows the average number of pregnancies for every 1,000 girls in the 15-19 age group is 65 but that figure rises to 70 in Thailand. Teen pregnancy and early child marriage are among the major obstacles that deny the rights of 75 million adolescent girls worldwide to education, says Plan International, a development charity that works with communities in 45 countries to alleviate child poverty. The first U.N. declared International Day of the Girl will be marked on October 11, 2012 with a focus on rights of the girls around the world. Picture taken October 1, 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.

An oversized chair and an oversized hospital bed are pictured in the children's and women's maternity ward at the University of Alabama Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama, April 26, 2012. U.S. hospitals are ripping out wall-mounted toilets and replacing them with floor models to better support obese patients. The University of Alabama at Birmingham's hospital, the nation's fourth largest, has widened doors, replaced wall-mounted toilets with floor models able to hold 250 pounds or more, and bought plus-size wheelchairs (twice the price of regulars) as well as mini-cranes to hoist obese patients out of bed.

A woman who recently gave birth, sits on a bed along with her new born baby in the post delivery ward at a district hospital in Shivpuri, in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, February 25, 2012. In rural Madhya Pradesh, an innovative free maternity ambulance service called "Janani Express", which runs in partnership between the state government and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), is trying to increase the number of babies born in clinics where proper care can be provided to the mothers and newborn children, and infant mortality can be decreased. Before this initiative, women would have been left to give birth in the fields or on mud floors. Now, the free ambulance brings pregnant women across dusty roads to health clinics where they can give birth safely under basic medical supervision, be nursed afterwards and educated on the importance of breastfeeding and hygiene before returning to their villages and communities.
