we build health systems. we stay.

The power to decide when, or if, to get pregnant can mean everything to the women we serve.

Ready to get started?

Question 1

Around the world, how many women need, but can't access, contraception?

You got it.

214 million women—the vast majority from the world's poorest nations—lack access to contraception, which impacts their ability to earn money, pursue education, and feed their children.

Question 2

This lack of contraception keeps families in poverty and hurts the entire economy. For every $1 spent on family planning, how much money is saved down the line?

Yep!

It's incredible—just $1 spent on family planning saves $4 in other expenses, from health care to sanitation. Further, family planning is one of PIH's most important tools to avert infant and maternal death.

Question 3

Family planning saves women's lives. If we met demand for contraception, we could reduce maternal mortality by how much?

You're right!

And it's not just about saving mothers. The same research estimates between 10% and 20% fewer babies would die if women had access to birth control.

Actually, it's even more.

Research shows we could reduce maternal death by 33%—one third—if women could access contraception. The same research estimates between 10% and 20% fewer babies would die, too.
