Pathfinder has been chosen to compete in the Huffington Post, Skoll Foundation, and Half the Sky's "Raise for Women Challenge". We could win $25,000 to support sexual and reproductive health care for women like Clara. But we can't do it without your help!
We're gearing up for Women Deliver 2013, a conference centered on the empowerment of women and girls. Nearly 30 Pathfinders from our headquarters and field offices will attend, present, and lead conference sessions. We hope you'll join us in Kuala Lumpur!
The female condom is the only woman-controlled method for preventing pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. It's crucial in Mozambique where men make most decisions about whether or not to practice safe sex. The female condom isn't just about protection. It's about independence.
This video may be funny, but barriers to reproductive health care aren't. You can help today with a few simple clicks. Watch the video, share the message. Help us start a conversation that women matter. Reproductive health care matters.
WHY CHOICE MATTERS
Right now 222 million women lack access to contraceptives. That's 222 million women without choice. But what does the world look like when women can choose if, when, and how often to have children? It's a world where women are happier, healthier, and more empowered. It's a world where families are better nourished, children stay in school, and parents can see a better future for their children.
Choice starts simply: a woman making a decision about her body. The power of choice is when every woman, every man, every young person, has access to sexual and reproductive health.
CHOICE HAS MANY FACES
Whether it's choice about contraception, maternal care, or HIV treatment, there is a name and a face associated with all of our work. Pathfinder has six main focus areas, each with the goal of improving the sexual and reproductive health and rights of the women and families we serve. Explore our areas of work:
