When the COVID-19 pandemic first emerged, we were in a state of rapid response. Knowing that even a short-term gap in access to sexual and reproductive health care would have severe consequences on women and girls around the world, Pathfinders across the globe acted rapidly.
Nearly half of all pregnancies— 111 million each year—are unintended. Pathfinder works toward a world where everyone of reproductive age can exercise their right to access quality modern contraception.
At Pathfinder, we work with governments and civil society partners to honor women’s and girls’ right to comprehensive abortion care—which includes safe abortion, postabortion care, and postabortion contraceptive services.
Through integrated programming, Pathfinder strives to advance HIV care into the primary health care system; and implement initiatives that ensure women and children reach their full potential for health and wellbeing.
Climate change threatens health and health systems in the communities where we work. Extreme weather caused by climate change is growing more severe, creating barriers to sexual and reproductive health and rights and exacerbating the inequities women and girls face every day.
Pathfinder advocates locally, nationally, and globally for robust donor funding and domestic resources as well as strong policies to improve access to and quality of sexual and reproductive health care for women and youth.
