But around the world, a lack of access to reproductive choice is holding women back.
There are still over 218 million women and girls in low- and middle-income countries who want access to contraception but don't have it, and every year 35 million women will resort to an unsafe abortion, because they cannot access safe care.
We’ve seen the transformational potential of reproductive choice, and the positive changes that can happen in a woman’s life when she has control over her body and future. Contraception and safe abortion support women to delay first pregnancy, space their pregnancies and avoid unsafe abortion, greatly reducing their risk of dying in pregnancy or childbirth. It also means that, if she chooses, a woman can finish her education, pursue a career and can more easily take care of the children she already has.
We exist to enable more women and girls to take control of their futures by providing reproductive health services across the 37 countries where we work.
At MSI, we strongly believe that every woman has the right to choose if and when she has a child.
The impact of this global healthcare crisis is devastating and far-reaching.
On an individual level, women’s health and happiness suffers - as do the finances and fortunes of her family. At a wider level, whole societies lose out as women are unable to fully engage in their communities - economically, politically or otherwise.
We exist to provide contraception and safe abortion to women and girls living in urban and rural communities all over the world. By providing a woman with access to these services, you empower her to choose her family size and future. You also give her the freedom to pursue hopes and dreams that could not only transform her life, but create ripples that spread across her family, community and country.
We place our clients at the centre of everything we do, and are committed to creating services that are both personalised and sustainable.
We’ve been providing life-changing reproductive health services for over 40 years. We work hard to make sure these services are high quality, affordable and accessible to as many people as possible.
At MSI Reproductive Choices, we don’t do one-size-fits-all approaches. We work hard to understand our clients and their unique challenges, tailoring our services and solutions accordingly.
In 2020 we continued to deliver for women.
