A woman’s sexual and reproductive rights are the most important factors in her ability to improve her life and determine her future.
This is why we advocate to ensure contraceptives stay on shelves, providers can do their jobs and people around the world are able to make free, full and informed choices about their sexual and reproductive health.
We champion policies that protect and fulfill a woman’s right to make decisions about her body, health and future, including the right to safe, legal abortion care.
We believe that everyone — especially women and girls — has the right to determine whether and when to have children.
We champion policies and funding that make sexual and reproductive health and rights a reality for all and fight to remove the policy barriers that prevent everyone, especially women and girls, from receiving the quality care they deserve.
