COVID-19: How We’re Responding

Our Work

For decades, EngenderHealth has improved the lives of men, women, and families through its work in family planning, maternal health, HIV and AIDS, gender equity, and many other programs.

Today we honor the legacy of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. & his tireless efforts to advance civil rights and social justice.

EngenderHealth is committed to advancing gender equality in & through its sexual & reproductive health and rights programming.

Maternal Health

Our approach to maternal health is holistic, addressing women’s sexual and reproductive health needs throughout their lives. We work to equip health facilities with medical supplies and well-trained staff to provide high-quality services.

Youth-Centered Programs

EngenderHealth believes in comprehensive sexuality education, providing age-appropriate information consistent with the evolving capacities of young people. Our adolescent/youth-friendly services are accessible, acceptable, equitable, appropriate, and effective.

We are committed to achieving gender equality through sexual and reproductive health and rights programs. We work through gender-equitable approaches to ensure women and girls can access quality sexual and reproductive health information and services.
