We have been a leader in contraception and sexual health for over 50 years. Today, in the UK, we train doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals on contraception and sexual health, providing the broadest range of contraception and sexual health training in the UK.
Internationally, we develop projects with partners in low- and middle-income countries, to improve sexual and reproductive health, focussing on family planning information and services.
We also work to change global policy. We are the only member of the International Union for Conservation of Nature with 50 years’ family planning expertise, because barriers to family planning are critical issues for those who are passionate about improving health, gender equality, and empowerment, and for those who are passionate about the conservation of biodiversity, the environment and sustainability.
Our vision is a world where everyone can choose freely whether and when to have children, and how many: for the benefit of all people and the planet.
Our mission is to promote sexual and reproductive health knowledge, rights and services, for the benefit of all people, especially women and girls, and to support sustainable development.
