The need for contraception is greater than ever before
They want to be able to plan their lives and futures, pursue an education or career, and fully engage in society. But their lack of access to contraception curtails this, leaving them at risk of unintended pregnancy, early pregnancy, multiple poorly spaced births and STIs.
All of these things can have a detrimental impact on both a woman’s health and finances, making it very difficult for her to support herself and the family she may already have.
Making sure that your teams have access to sexual and reproductive healthcare is a crucial step to making this a reality.
By investing in the work of Marie Stopes International, you’re not only having a positive impact on the women and men who work for you. You’re also sending a very powerful message to the countries and communities you operate in; that you’re committed to their sustainable development and growth.
We will work collaboratively with you to design a partnership that’s aligned with both your strategic goals and our mission. Investing in quality contraception and reproductive healthcare for the women and men who work for you is just one of many ways you can partner with us.
To find out what a partnership with us could look like, please contact James Harcourt, our Senior Director of Global Programmes Unit.
Invest in Marie Stopes International, and we’ll both go further. Contact John Lotspeich, our Director of External Affairs, to learn more about a partnership with us.
Some of our most successful work to date has taken place through corporate social responsibility partnerships with garment factories in Vietnam and Cambodia.
For over a decade we have been helping to educate factory workers on sexual health, offering voluntary family planning counselling, and providing contraceptive services at on-site clinics. Through this work we have been able to reach thousands of vulnerable women who are often young, from distant migrant communities, and lacking in understanding about sexual and reproductive health.
Aside from empowering these women to take control of their health and futures, the impact of providing these services also creates ripples that touch their peers, their families, and their communities.
In 2015 we doubled our commitment to Family Planning 2020 (FP2020) - the global partnership dedicated to improving voluntary access to family planning information, services and supplies for women and girls in the world’s poorest countries.
We pledge to reach 12 million new users of contraception by 2020.
We’ve made our pledge, what’s yours? For more information about how you can partner with us, please contact our Director of Partnerships and Resource Mobilisation, John Lotspeich.
Funding from corporate partnerships will allow us to invest in new, high quality programmes, and draw on innovative technology and delivery models, enabling us to reach millions more women in a sustainable way. With your support we can achieve our FP2020 goals.
