Sri Lanka

In Sri Lanka, Marie Stopes is working in partnership with Population Services Lanka (PSL) to provide sexual and reproductive health services to thousands of the country’s poorest and most vulnerable people.

PSL has been providing a full range of long-acting, permanent and short-term methods of contraception, along with other reproductive health services, throughout the island since 1983.

How we deliver services in Sri Lanka

Our services are provided through a nationwide network of centres, some of which support the conflict afflicted north and east of the country. These centres offer a full range of quality reproductive health services, leading the field in clinical quality and client focus. They also double as knowledge and training centres for our outreach teams, social franchisees and public health sector workers.

Our outreach teams – comprised of a nurse, a driver and a doctor – travel to hard-to-reach parts of the country, offering long-acting and permanent contraception to Sri Lankans who would otherwise have no means of accessing this.

PSL’s social marketing programme markets and distributes a range of contraceptive products to pharmacies across the country through province-based distributors. The team try to reach clients through a range of channels to meet their varied needs, often integrating community-based distribution of products within our outreach and clinic services.

The programme brings these safe and affordable methods closer to the client and provides an opportunity to increase access to family planning information across communities. About half of Sri Lanka’s short-term contraceptives are delivered through our innovative social marketing programme.
