Advancing Health & Rights Through Integration


In a year of remarkable achievement, what was most exciting?

The answer—integration—is the theme of Pathfinder's 2013 Annual Report. Pathfinder is a leader in implementing programs that address people's many interconnected sexual and reproductive health needs, because we understand how real people live their lives. When integration is implemented properly, it enables projects, health systems, and organizations like Pathfinder to meet the needs of those we serve cohesively, as they experience their day-today challenges, without burdening them further. Integration makes life easier and health care more accessible. And, as you will see in Pathfinder's 2013 Annual Report, it changes lives.

ten ways to explore 2013:
