Family planning in the Pacific

Family Planning in the Pacific means:

  • women have access to contraception which allows them to choose when and how many children they have 
  • girls can choose when to start having children, so they can stay in school longer and eventually earn an income
  • families have access to trained midwives, nurses and doctors
  • there are fewer unsafe pregnancies and abortions
  • maternal and infant mortality is reduced
  • women are better able to feed, educate and support their children
  • women have access to cervical cancer screening and treatment

Our work

We:

  • train local health workers and clinicians to deliver family planning services
  • improve access to contraceptive supplies and enable women to choose the timing and spacing of their children
  • educate communities about gender-based violence, STIs, HIV, safe sex, and respectful relationships
  • improve gender equality and health outcomes through men's behavior change programs
  • train local organisations to deliver family planning information and education
  • promote healthy sexuality
  • support local governments and organisations to deliver cervical cancer screening and treatment

About the Pacific

The Pacific has some of the worst reproductive and sexual health statistics globally, including unacceptably high rates of:

  • maternal and infant mortality
  • unintended and teenage pregnancies
  • sexual violence
  • cervical cancer deaths
