Contraceptives
Around the world, 218 million women want to prevent pregnancy but are not using contraception. For every dollar we invest in meeting this unmet need, we save $4 in education, immunization and water and sanitation.


Global Gag Rule

President Trump’s expanded Global Gag Rule targeted women’s reproductive rights by blocking global health assistance to organizations outside of the United States that use their own, non-U.S. funds to provide information, referrals or services for legal abortion or to advocate for access to abortion services in their own countries.

Trump’s expansion impacted about 15 times more U.S. funding and also extended the reach of restrictions beyond nongovernmental organization grants and cooperative agreements to contracts. This broadened the reach of the policy’s already deadly effects, including increased unintended pregnancies, unsafe abortions and higher rates of maternal and child mortality. The Global Gag Rule, previously known within the U.S. government as the Mexico City Policy and deceptively re-branded by the Trump-Pence administration as “Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance,” was rescinded by President Biden on January 28, 2021.
