1/5 Today, many social media users are using #BlackOutTuesday to show their solidarity with those working for racial justice. Below we'll list a few pieces of content we hope you'll find useful in this conversation. Otherwise, we'll be quiet, keep listening, watching & reading

Our sexual and reproductive health and rights mission is rooted in a vision of equality. To everyone working to end all forms of oppression based on race, gender, sexuality, class, disability, or other human traits: we stand with you.

#BlackLivesMatter

La Ligue Ivoirienne des Droits Des Femmes en partenariat avec l’ONG américaine Engenderhealth organise sa première activité dénommée « LA LIGUE À CŒUR OUVERT : POUR QU’ELLES NE SOIENT PLUS JAMAIS SEULES ! » en faveur de 50 survivantes de violences conjugales et sexuelles.

📢 @EngenderHealth is providing quality health services, addressing supply chain issues to ensure access to #contraception, and shining a light on the need of services for survivors of #GBV.

We're thankful for midwives and sexual & reproductive health (#SRH) workers, like @GontoMichelle in Cote d’Ivoire, who are continuing to educate people in their communities about #contraception & #familyplanning during #COVID19.

Who We Are

Vision

A gender-equal world where all people achieve their sexual and reproductive health and rights.

Mission

To implement high-quality, gender-equitable programs that advance sexual and reproductive health and rights.

Strategic Approach

We know that sexual and reproductive health and rights are completely and inextricably intertwined with gender equality. We also know that marginalized groups—such as girls, women, and gender minorities; adolescents and youth; people with disabilities; economically disadvantaged groups; and rural and other hard-to-reach populations—are particularly vulnerable to discriminatory practices that can prevent them from leading healthy lives. But that can change. We believe that if all people are empowered and engaged; and if they live in supportive communities where systems and institutions provide high-quality, gender-equitable sexual and reproductive healthcare; and if policies, laws, and process are supportive, then they will exercise their rights to gender-equitable sexual and reproductive health services and participate as equal members of society.

Technical Expertise

To support our theory of change, EngenderHealth brings expertise in the following technical areas:

  • Comprehensive sexuality education
  • Contraceptive counseling and service delivery
  • Comprehensive abortion care
  • Maternal healthcare, including fistula prevention and treatment
  • Basic emergency obstetric and newborn care
  • Prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections
  • Prevention, detection, and treatment of cervical cancer
  • Prevention, screening, counseling, and related services for gender-based violence survivors

Experience and Impact

Our programming builds on the lessons learned and best practices gained through more than 75 years of experience working in more than 100 countries around the world to support individuals, communities, and healthcare systems in delivering high-quality, gender-equitable programs and services that advance sexual and reproductive health and rights. With an international support office in Washington, DC and regional offices in Abidjan, Dar es Salaam, and New Delhi, we are implementing programs in countries across Asia and Africa, as well as in the United States.

In our 2018–2019 program year, our contraceptive counseling and service delivery work in nine countries supported activities in 7,885 health facilities in to achieve the following results:

  • 3.9 million clients received contraceptive services, including counseling
  • 3.2 million people received their chosen method of contraception
  • 5.2 million unintended pregnancies were averted
  • 1.4 million unsafe abortions were averted
  • 72,910 child deaths were averted
  • 6,472 maternal deaths were averted
  • $268,000,000 in direct healthcare costs were saved

Values

As we work toward our vision, our strategy and our programs are built on the following values:

  • Diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • Evidence and innovation
  • Engagement and collaboration
  • Leadership and learning
  • Organizational effectiveness
