Julie Mundy

Chair of the Board, Founding CEO of Marie Stopes International Australia, GAICD, PBAS, BCom(Hons)

“I believe that MSI’s socially innovative and courageous approach makes a genuine difference to the lives of women and their families. I hope to see a future where every single woman is able to take her reproductive rights and health for granted.”

Jane Black

MSc International Development, Diploma Management Studies, BA (Humanities)(Hons)

“I believe in choices and the basic right to be able to access quality sexual and reproductive healthcare and education. However, this right of access is limited – nowhere more so than among the estimated 65.3 million people who have been forcibly displaced worldwide. My hope is that MSI can continue to improve sexual health humanitarian responses.”

Ian Howie

Adjunct Professor, School of Global, Urban & Social Studies, RMIT; Associate Professor, Nossal Institute for Global Health, University of Melbourne

“MSI is an organisation that delivers. Using its growing international status to run programs that directly address the reproductive health needs of poor rural women and men, it does so without excessive bureaucracy and by placing committed people in the areas of greatest need.”
