We are MSI Reproductive Choices. As our name suggests, we are unapologetically pro-choice – we believe every woman and every girl should have the power to decide and determine the path their life takes.
From contraception to safe abortions, and life-saving services following unsafe procedures, we are committed to delivering compassionate, high-quality sexual and reproductive healthcare for all.
MSI Reproductive Choices is built on the views of our founders, who believed that by providing high-quality, client-centred care they could support women to pursue the future of their choice – on their terms.
Today, our organisation has nearly 9,000 team members working in 37 countries across the world to make reproductive choice possible, with access to contraception, abortion and life-saving post-abortion care. In some countries we focus exclusively on maternal and child health and in others we provide the full spectrum of reproductive health services. Our teams are rooted in the communities they serve – from major cities to rural, hard-to-reach villages. By taking services into areas others cannot – or will not – go, we enable more women and girls to make choices that were previously unavailable to them, in turn, improving the lives of individuals, families and communities.
Since 1976, we have delivered sexual and reproductive healthcare services to over 162 million women. We currently support over 67,000 clients daily with reproductive choice, and over 32 million women and girls worldwide use a method of contraception provided by us. Last year, our services prevented 14.1 million unintended pregnancies, 6.6 million unsafe abortions and 39,000 maternal deaths (read more about our impact). But our work is far from over.
Our ambition is a bold one: by 2030, no abortion will be unsafe and everyone who wants contraception will be able to access it. To get there, we’re putting choice, in all its iterations and forms, at the heart of everything we do.
Alongside providing services, we will continue to work to remove the unnecessary legal, medical and regulatory restrictions that prevent people accessing contraception and safe abortions, and which ultimately cost lives.
We will seek out and expand our partnerships, listening, sharing and working closely with communities and clients.
And we will fight to make sure no one is left behind – from women living in the most marginalised, hard-to-reach communities to adolescents seeking contraception despite taboo and stigma.
We know that access to contraception, safe abortion and post-abortion care saves lives. For some, it can mean the ability to complete their education and start a career. For others, it means being able to look after the family they already have. For all, it means the freedom to decide their own future and contribute to a fairer, more equal society.
