Experts predict that COVID-19 could lead to a 25% decline in sexual and reproductive health services, leading to at least 734,000 pregnancies.
Expanding access to contraception prevents unintended pregnancies, lowers the number of unsafe abortions, and helps reduce pregnancy-related deaths. Pathfinder's pandemic response is helping women, girls, and their communities survive the crisis, and come through stronger and more resilient.
We swiftly adapted to keep contraceptive services, trainings, and education available, reaching millions of people since the pandemic began. In the 20+ countries where we live and work, we are partnering with governments to forge stronger health and social systems that fight COVID-19 and boost access to sexual and reproductive health.
As a global health organization with locally led, community-driven programs, we've supported people around the world to make their own reproductive health decisions for more than 60 years. So that everyone can choose their own path forward.
