Review of 2015 Grantmaking

Population and
Reproductive Health

Our partners are expanding access to quality reproductive health information and services for women and young people—including family planning and contraception, comprehensive sexuality education, and abortion care.

Program Highlight: Quality Innovation Challenge

Making Quality Matter in Reproductive HealthMore women and girls are gaining access to reproductive health information and services, but we've learned that focusing on access alone is not enough—quality matters. Our partners are working to secure everyone's right to quality care that's centered around women's lives and goals.

In 2013, we launched a Quality Innovation Challenge to encourage creative ideas to improve quality in reproductive health. Two years into their projects, our grantee partners are empowering women and girls in new ways by engaging youth, leveraging mobile technology, and improving the measurement of quality.
