What We Do

  • Make sure women can access safe, legal abortion services, including lifesaving postabortion care, so they can protect their health
  • Strengthen local NGOs and their network of community health workers so more people in more places have access to the reproductive health services they need
  • Make sure short-term, long-acting, permanent, and emergency contraception are always available, so people of all ages can choose the method that’s best for them
  • Train health workers to deliver services to young people without judgement or bias, so first-time parents can get the services they need and the quality of care they deserve
