Approach

PAI advances the right to sexual and reproductive health care for women and girls everywhere.

At PAI, we are motivated by one powerful truth: A woman who is in charge of her sexual and reproductive health can change her life and transform her community. PAI works with policymakers in Washington, D.C. and our network of global partners to advocate for accessible, quality health care and advance the sexual and reproductive rights of women, girls and other vulnerable groups.

PAI expands access to sexual and reproductive health and rights in three areas:

Advocating for Women, Girls and Marginalized Communities

We engage U.S. policymakers and provide them with the evidence to advance progressive policies, programs and funding that will uphold and defend sexual and reproductive health and rights.

Supporting Global Partners through Strategic Advocacy

We collaborate with sexual and reproductive rights advocates around the world to strengthen their country-level work through financial support and strategic guidance.

Increasing Country Ownership of Family Planning

We support our partners’ advocacy to improve policy and funding for sexual and reproductive health and rights. By investing in family planning, country governments are becoming increasingly resilient and less vulnerable to harmful U.S. foreign aid policies.

Our work to expand sexual and reproductive rights and access to care focuses on these key issues:

PAI champions progressive policies and funding that make sexual and reproductive rights a reality for all. We fight to remove the policy barriers between women, girls and other vulnerable groups and the quality care — including contraception and safe abortion — they need and deserve.

Abortion

Abortion

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.

Contraception

Contraception

We believe that everyone — especially women and girls — has the right to determine whether and when to have children.

Supportive Policies and Funding

Supportive Policies and Funding

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.

Quality and Equity

Quality and Equity

We believe that everyone, including women and girls, should have access to the quality, comprehensive sexual and reproductive health care they need and deserve.
