    A story about dispensing contraception to a community in Afghanistan

This project follows one imam and his wife near Mazar-e-Sharif, Afghanistan, as they train and dispense contraception to their community. How do they operate in a society plagued by poverty, cultural restrictions and limited access to healthcare? This package includes a story and a short video on the Guardian on how imams think about birth control.
