Pathfinder has worked to improve health systems by advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) for 63 years. Our staff are part of the communities where they work and invested in making things better. They know what works and what doesn’t.
From global networks to national influencers to local community-based organizations, women, youth, and adolescents—we work strategically and diligently to bring about policy changes that support access and funding for SRHR. Especially now, during this global crisis, when women and girls need these services more than ever. Through our local partners in Nigeria, we quickly learned that cases of gender-based violence were skyrocketing during COVID-19 lockdowns. We worked with those partners to reopen health centers and gender-based violence support centers, despite the lockdowns.
With your partnership, we’ll keep pushing for women and girls to have the services they need despite every barrier they have before them—even a global pandemic.
