TEDxChange 2012 is a TEDx event co-organized by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and TED. Convened by Melinda French Gates and hosted by Chris Anderson, TEDxChange will focus on issues surrounding global health and development. Our event is called TEDxPhoenixChange, and is one of many TEDx events happening around the globe that will expand on the ideas brought up at TEDxChange 2010.
Melinda Gates’s talk – This year Melinda’s talk will address the importance of family planning in improving health and development outcomes worldwide. She will focus on the fact that families have unequal access to the contraception they demand, depending on where they live – in fact, 215 million women who wish to avoid pregnancy do not have access to contraceptives.While her talk will be derived from reputable research as well as her own experience, it will include some potentially controversial content including references to sex, abortion, and specific types of contraception. We understand this topic can sometimes be viewed as controversial, so we wanted to let you know ahead of time.
