Our priority is to provide access to sexual and reproductive health services to all Mexican women who require it, and to support women in vulnerable situations.
Our Mission: Children by choice, not by chance.
Our Vision: A world where every birth is wanted.
The Marie Stopes Foundation arrived in Mexico in 1999, in the state of Chiapas, with the aim of supporting the population with information on sexual and reproductive rights and contraceptive services, in order to reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies and maternal death.
In 2008 we arrived in Mexico City (formerly the Federal District), one year after abortion was decriminalized in the city, to support the population in accessing a legal and safe termination of pregnancy, and with the aim of confronting to a public health problem in Mexico: maternal death and high rates of adolescent pregnancy; as well as bringing the rest of our sexual and reproductive health services closer to Mexicans.
We place our clients at the center of everything we do, and are committed to creating services that are both personalized and sustainable.
We exist to enable more women and girls to take control of their futures by providing family planning services across all the 37 countries where we work.
