In just over 40 years MSI has grown from a single centre in central London, to a global network of more than 600 centres across 37 countries.
We have 10 centres across Asia Pacific, conveniently located in places that are safe, easy to find and well served by public transport. The majority of centres are located in urban areas, and in some cases, they can be one of only a few providers of reproductive health services in the town, city or region. They offer a range of sexual and reproductive healthcare services and are the base for our outreach programs, call centres and medical teams.
Our work is generously supported by the Australia Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, under the Australian NGO Co-operation Program and the Gender Equity Fund.
With ten centres across Asia Pacific, we offer a range of services, including contraception, sexual health screening and testing, and in some instances, safe abortion and post-abortion care.
MS Ladies are qualified midwives and nurses from the local community, or simply committed women from other walks of life, who are trained and supported by MSI to provide contraceptive services and advice to women in their own homes. MS Ladies provide discreet support, and are fully embedded in the communities they serve. They not only establish close relationships with their clients, but tailor their services to the unique needs of the local community.
Safe abortion and post-abortion care
In the countries where we are legally permitted to do so, we help women to safely end their pregnancies. By providing services to women when and where they need them, we can reduce the number of women that are forced to resort to unsafe abortions, risking their health and in some cases their life.
