2017 was the year in which we delivered more services, and achieved a greater health impact than ever before in a single year.
26.9 million women and their partners are using a form of contraception provided by us. And since 2010, the number of women we are protecting from unplanned pregnancy annually more than doubled.
The figures are impressive in themselves, still more so when you consider that each of them represents an individual woman or girl, using our services to build the life she wants. We will never lose sight of the fact that each maternal death averted is a life saved, a family kept together, one more person working towards a country’s development.Read more about our impact in 2017
