Global impact in 2021

In 2021, in partnership with governments, civil society organisations and implementing partners, MSI supported 19.4 million people to access healthcare across 37 countries. This included 17.3 million clients who accessed a contraception, abortion or post-abortion care
service.

That’s 67,000 clients supported with reproductive choice every day. We estimate that these services prevented more than 14.1 million unintended pregnancies and 6.6 million unsafe abortions, saving the lives of 39,500 women.

We reached millions often left behind by healthcare systems. Over 70% of our contraceptive services were delivered to underserved communities and 1.7 million of our clients were adolescents – a group often excluded from sexual and reproductive healthcare, but for whom we have tailored programmes, ensuring young people can determine their own futures. Our teams also worked to protect access to women’s healthcare in humanitarian settings, including Afghanistan and Myanmar.

What we do

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.

What we do

Our projects

We work on a range of projects across Asia Pacific, including menstrual health, addressing the COVID-19 pandemic and supporting public health systems.

Country programs

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 2021, 273,000 people in Cambodia, Papua New Guinea and Timor-Leste were using a family planning method provided by MSI Asia Pacific. 63% of these clients were accessed via outreach, in rural communities who may not have otherwise had access to family planning services.

Our Impact
Women have more responsibilities at home than men, so they struggle to take time off and travel to a clinic to avail these services. Some women do not have money or do not know where to go even if they want to seek family planning services.
