There are 215 million women worldwide without access to family planning. We exist to serve them.
In 2011, 11 million women were using contraception provided by us, preventing 4.5 million unintended pregnancies.
And for every £1 of donor money spent by our programmes, £7 will be saved by health systems in developing countries.
The costs-to-savings ratios vary by region, for various reasons including economies of scale in our larger programmes and the relative cost of skilled labour and commodities.
- in Africa, for every £1 spent, £7.64 will be saved
- in Asia Pacific, for every £1 spent, £9.53 will be saved
- in south Asia , for every £1 spent, £13.00 will be saved
- in Latin America, for every £1 spent, £2.06 will be saved.
