India

We have two programmes in India, delivering family planning and reproductive health services to thousands of women and men - Foundation for Reproductive Health Services India (formerly Marie Stopes India) and Population Health Services India.

Across India there remains a high level of unmet need for family planning services and both our programmes work in partnership with the government to improve service provision in the country.

Marriage at an early age is common – especially among women – 27% of girls in India are married before their 18th birthday and 7% are married before the age of 15.

Many women have a minimal role in choosing their spouse, method of contraception, the timing of their first pregnancy, the place of delivery, or the decision to end a pregnancy. Almost half (44%) of all girls age between 15 and 19 in India already have at least one child.

Early marriage in India is common – 27% of girls are married before their 18th birthday.

Foundation for Reproductive Health Services India

Foundation for Reproductive Health Services India (FRHS India) is working to improve access, choice and quality of reproductive health services among the poor and difficult to reach clients in the states of Rajasthan, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh.

Working in a Public Private Partnership Model, FRHS India provides a range of family planning services through multiple channels – static clinics, mobile outreach teams, and support to government managed outreach services. Currently, FRHS India operates centres, outreach teams, and is providing support to government-managed outreach sites, making quality family planning services accessible to over 100,000 women and men annually.

Outreach in hard-to-reach parts of the country is a key way in which we improve contraceptive access for the under-served communities who need us most. FRHS India's outreach teams are increasing the provision of long-acting and permanent contraception in nearly 50 districts of the three states.

Population Health Services India

Population Health Services India (PHS India) was established in 1999 and has since expanded its operations to offer sexual and reproductive healthcare in six centres across four states.

Working with the District Health Authorities in these states, PHS India works to deliver family planning services through centres and outreach. The team lead the field in clinical quality standards and client focus, and their centres double as knowledge and training centres for the Indian Ministry of Health.

The social marketing programme run by PHS India has proved to be one of the most successful in the country, and they are currently the third largest provider of condoms in India. The programme allows us to provide clients in India with as much choice as possible, expand access to both short and long term methods of contraception.
