Melinda Gates & the birth control debate

More than 200 million women who don’t want to get pregnant lack access to contraceptives.

It's a stunning fact that has prompted Melinda Gates to action.

At the Women Deliver 2013 conference in Kuala Lumpur, I caught up with the co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Its goal is to get modern contraceptives to another 120 million women by year 2020.

Gates tells me that reframing the birth control debate is key. She says, "What we have to do is put the women and the girl at the center of this."
