What We Fund

Population and Reproductive Health

Every woman and girl—no matter where she lives in the world—has the right to live with dignity and have a voice in decisions that affect her life.

The Population and Reproductive Health program is committed to promoting reproductive health and rights, with a focus on high quality information and services. We place a special emphasis on engaging and serving youth, and believe that young people have the best potential for building and sustaining a movement of change.

We aim to:

  • Improve the quality of comprehensive sexuality education, voluntary contraception, and abortion care.
  • Strengthen service delivery, build leadership and advocacy capacity, and shift social and cultural norms to allow women and youth to make their own reproductive health care decisions.
  • Forge partnerships with global research advocacy organizations, especially networks led by youth, and to create positive and effective messages about reproductive health and rights at the regional and global levels.

  • Women and young people deserve to have choices, knowledge, and control over their lives and over their bodies, and to be treated with dignity and respect.
