The 2010 Report shows that as a result of services delivered by Marie Stopes International, an estimated 4.8 million unintended pregnancies, 13,600 maternal deaths and 1.3 million unsafe abortions will be prevented. The report highlights that millions of the world's poorest and most vulnerable women continue to trust Marie Stopes International to provide them with quality family planning and reproductive healthcare.
Dana Hovig, CEO of Marie Stopes International said “Family planning is one of the most cost effective preventative healthcare interventions available. These results once again demonstrate that we are making an ever greater difference to the lives of our clients, and an increasing contribution to our mission of children by choice, not chance.
As an organization, we are continually striving to enable more women to exercise their fundamental reproductive rights. We are committed to measuring the quality and impact of our services in order to keep improving what we do.”
About the Global Impact Report
The Global Impact Report evaluates the impact that Marie Stopes International's services have on the lives of women on a yearly basis by bringing together key statistics from our 40 country programmes. The impact of programmes is measured by the Impact Estimator, developed by Marie Stopes International in collaboration with experts from the Guttmacher Institute and other leading international health organisations. This mathematical model converts service figures into estimates of their health, demographic and economic impacts.
