MSI’s 2023 Impact: the numbers are in!

We’re proud to be an organisation that goes as far as is needed to ensure that women and girls aren’t left behind.  

When you give someone choice, you give them the power to determine their own future — and that benefits all of us. At MSI, we were proud to support over 93,000 women and girls with their reproductive choices every day in 2023. 

We’re excited to share our latest Global Impact Report, which details our achievements in 2023 and highlights what makes our work different: 

We go further

MSI’s local teams served 12.8 million people with little or no prior access. Our outreach teams travelled on foot, by 4×4, and in boats to rural and poor communities where the need is greatest. Our pioneering geo-mapping enabled us to go to the very last mile.  

We save lives

In the countries where we work, pregnancy-related deaths would be 15% higher without our programmes. In many MSI countries, unsafe abortion is a leading cause of pregnancy-related deaths. By offering abortion within the fullest extent of the law, as well as contraception and post-abortion care, MSI’s providers are saving lives and protecting a woman’s right to her own body.  

We provide choice in a changing world

MSI helped 4.5 million people living through climate disasters and conflict. Local MSI teams were on the frontlines of humanitarian crises in nine countries, from Ethiopia to Afghanistan. Our brave providers helped women avoid unintended pregnancy, distributed menstrual health kits & safe birth delivery kits, and provided care to survivors of sexual and gender-based violence. 

We enable healthy futures

MSI supported 2.3 million adolescents. With sexual health information and care, we gave millions of young people the power to choose if and when to become pregnant, reaching them at a critical juncture in their lives.  

We think long-term

We mentored 12,000 public sector workers. We’re future-focused and innovating to build long-term access to reproductive choice. Last year, we partnered with 22 governments to train public sector workers — strengthening facilities, supply chains and national health systems.
