Our partners

    Home      Who we are      Partners

    If we are to realise a world where everyone has reproductive choice, partnership is essential. 


    We work with a range of partners at a global, national and community level, from governments and global aid agencies to private healthcare providers and grassroots organisations.  

    Together we deliver services, strengthen national health systems, provide training, advocate for change, share expertise and deliver impact — supporting over 80,000 people with their reproductive choices every day. 

    We’d like to thank those who support our work around the world. Whether that’s through gifts, grants, funding, or technical assistance — your generous support enables us to serve millions of people through a variety of projects. 

    Below is a selection of our key partners.
