Marie Stopes Society

In many countries Marie Stopes International collaborates with locally registered organisations to make reproductive health services available to underserved communities. In Pakistan, MSI partners with Marie Stopes Society, a locally registered NGO with national coverage focused on serving the unmet reproductive health needs of women and men across the country.

Marie Stopes Society operates across a large proportion of the country and their services are available to more than 70 million people. Over the past decade they have averted 4.6 million unintended pregnancies and 6,000 maternal deaths.

The security situation, large rural population, and regular natural disasters make providing contraception and other services in Pakistan particularly challenging. It is one of six countries that account for more than half of all maternal deaths worldwide, and 65% of the country’s 184 million people lives in rural areas.

Pakistan is one of six countries that account for over 50% of all maternal deaths worldwide.

How we help deliver services in Pakistan

Marie Stopes Society uses a range of approaches to ensure that they can help as many women as possible to choose if, and when, they get pregnant.

Currently they have:

  • Centres in urban areas.
  • Outreach teams taking contraception to public health facilities in rural areas.
  • Private healthcare providers operating under the social franchise brand, Suraj.
  • Health service providers, taking information and contraception to women in the communities where they live.
  • One maternal and child health centre providing emergency obstetric care 24 hours a day.
