Marie Stopes South Africa

Established in 1993, Marie Stopes South Africa is the largest non-profit provider of sexual and reproductive health services in the country, delivering services through centres across six regions.

Our team are committed to improving the lives of women and communities in South Africa, working to avert unsafe abortions, decrease the number of unwanted pregnancies, and reduce the impact of HIV and STIs.

What we do in South Africa

The majority of our services in South Africa are delivered through static centres and early medical units in urban areas and informal settlements. These are logistically important for helping us reach impoverished communities and at risk and marginalised groups, with contraception, safe abortion and maternal health services.

We try to make sure the services we deliver in South Africa are available to as many people as possible, which is why the fees we charge for our services are cross-subsidised across our network. This means our centres are able to offer prices that best suit the communities they serve. Any surplus we generate is reinvested back into our core work, allowing us to grow our reach and range of services.

For the past two decades we have been working closely with the government, strengthening public health systems across the Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal regions. Our work is also closely aligned with government policies, including the Choice of Termination of Pregnancy Act, the Contraception and Fertility Planning Policy and the National Strategy on HIV/AIDS, TB and STIs.
