Family Planning & Reproductive Health

Of the 213 million pregnancies that occur worldwide each year, approximately 40%—or 85 million—are unintended. Family planning saves lives and empowers women to improve their family’s health, education, and financial stability, and is key to advancing economic progress in middle- and low-income countries.

To date, JSI has implemented more than 150 family planning and reproductive health initiatives in 80 countries. Our total market approach to family planning is tailored to each country’s specific context and supports reproductive health policies that promote the integration of family planning with other basic health services at the primary health care level, including postpartum, immunization, and HIV services. 

From streamlining clinic services to engaging policymakers to ensure family planning resources are available, from delivering commodities to remote health posts, to helping governments and their partners gather and use data to improve health system performance, JSI is dedicated to ensuring that women have access to the family planning methods that meet their needs.
