MSI’s Board of Trustees presents the 2017 Annual Report and the audited financial statements under the Charities Act 2011 and the Companies Act 2006 (including the Directors’ Report.)
We know that when a woman can choose whether and when to have children, it gives her an opportunity to take control of her future. 2017 was a year in which we continued to deliver high-quality services, reaching millions of women in some of the world’s most hard-to-reach communities.
In 2017, more than 26.9 million women and their partners were using a method of contraception provided by us, an increase of more than 6% on the previous year.
During the same period, we provided 4.1 million safe abortion and post-abortion care services to women across the partnership.
The figures are impressive in themselves, still more so when you consider that behind each of these figures is an individual woman or girl, using our services to build the life she wants.
