Despite daunting projections at the beginning of the pandemic warning that up to 80% of services could be disrupted, the MSI global partnership reached 12.8 million clients, across 34,000 sites, with high-quality sexual and reproductive health services in 2020.
Around the world, 32.6 million people are using a method of contraception provided by the MSI global partnership, and across the countries where we work, an average of one in five women who want contraception are using a method provided by us.
Every single day, we served 35,000 people with the contraception, safe abortion, and post-abortion care services that enabled them to continue to build the lives they want. One in six clients were adolescents under the age of 20, a group that is still facing significant barriers to access around the world.
We keep our clients at the centre of everything we do, tailoring our services and approach accordingly. We reach our clients across Asia Pacific through a range of channels, including centres in urban settings and outreach teams for rural or remote clients.
We work on a range of projects across Asia Pacific, including menstrual health, addressing the COVID-19 pandemic and supporting public health systems.
We are the support office for MSI programs in Cambodia, Papua New Guinea and Timor-Leste. Our teams in-country provide sexual and reproductive healthcare through clinics, outreach, public sector strengthening.
In 2020, over 250,000 people in Cambodia, Papua New Guinea and Timor-Leste were using a family planning method provided by MSI Asia Pacific. 68% of these clients were accessed via outreach, in rural communities who may not have otherwise had access to family planning services.
