For over 45 years, MSI has led with the principle that the person best placed to make decisions about their body and their future is the client.
As healthcare providers, we can guide and support these decision-making processes by listening and counselling on the options available. But ultimately, our aim is to empower clients to make the reproductive choices that are right for them.
This might mean accessing a service at one of our centres or accessing one of our high-quality contraceptive products from a local pharmacy. With the expanding choice of self-care methods, we can support women to manage their health on their terms.
34 million people around the world are using contraception provided by MSI right now
We’re committed to ensuring our clients have the agency and information they need to make their own reproductive choices. Led by our MSI 2030 strategy, we’re working to ensure clients are only one contact away from a quality reproductive healthcare provider or self-care product.
To ensure everyone has access to choice, we make quality self-care products available at convenient locations and ensure people feel empowered to use these products safely.
Our global network of 33 contact centres are there to help clients when they need support. People can call, message on social media, or WhatsApp us to get free information, advice or a referral to safe services near them. Our contact centres support thousands of clients every day.
The self-management of medical abortion can be a powerful tool for expanding access to safe abortion.
Following the COVID-19 pandemic, access to self-managed abortion care has been revolutionised by telemedicine, which allows people seeking an abortion to receive pills by post to self-administer at home. Evidence shows that at-home early medical abortion care (known as telemedicine) is just as safe and effective as in-facility care, and often preferable to clients.
To support the safe self-management of medical abortion in permitted settings, we provide quality medication, accurate information on how to self-administer the method, and access to follow-up care when it’s required.
