Expanding Global Reproductive Rights

Expanding Global Reproductive Rights

Planned Parenthood is a leader in working to eliminate barriers to basic reproductive health care that is essential to the health and well-being of women and men everywhere.

Worldwide, limited access to health care, lack of political will, legal and regulatory restrictions, cultural taboos, and harsh gender inequality all put women at risk of unintended pregnancy, unsafe abortion and childbirth, and sexually transmitted infections. 

Planned Parenthood is dedicated to overcoming barriers to accessing reproductive health services and exercising reproductive rights by empowering this generation and the next, worldwide. The Planned Parenthood Federation of America International Program addresses these challenges through innovative projects in 17 countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
