Throughout this crisis, we are determined to continue to do all we can to provide care to the women and girls who need us.
The COVID-19 pandemic is shaping up to be this century's global health challenge; one we weren't quite prepared for. However, like most organisations, Marie Stopes International is adapting to the situation rapidly.
As the virus spreads around the world, our priority is continuing to deliver care to the women and girls who need us, while protecting the health and safety of our clients and team members.
This is a global crisis, and we recognise that many of our programmes have and will continue to be affected. We have continuity plans in place, as well as sensible protocols to protect both team members and clients, so that – where possible – we can carry on our work with minimum disruption and maximum safety. We stay informed through global evidence and national guidance from governments in the countries where we work to ensure that as the situation develops further, we can respond and adapt swiftly.
As the emergency facing us becomes increasingly uncertain, we want to reiterate our promise to our clients around the world.
We remain tirelessly committed to providing life-changing reproductive health services and we will continue to provide for the women and girls who need us for as long as it is safe to do so.
We are confident that – together – we will make it through this troubling time.
We are on the ground in 37 countries around the world, going the last mile to deliver practical solutions and life-changing services.
We’re working tirelessly to expand access to high quality and modern contraception, and to offer the widest range of methods in every country we operate in, so that every woman we meet can choose the method that is right for her.
In the countries where we're legally permitted to do so, we help women to safely end their pregnancies. We also provide immediate, life-saving care for women suffering from unsafe abortion and miscarriage.
