Founded in 1976, Marie Stopes International (MSI) has grown from a single family planning clinic in London to a global network with operations in 43 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East. Today, MSI’s 626 clinics form the backbone of its service delivery. The organization provides high-quality sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services to millions of people across the globe each year, many of whom are living in poverty.
Marie Stopes International China (MSIC), as a member of the global partnership of Marie Stopes International, was established in 2000 in China. MSIC is a non-profit organization and registered with the Industrial and Commercial Representative Office. MSIC seeks to deliver relevant, informative, cost effective and sustainable sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services and education to improve the health and well-being of Chinese people, with a particular focus on underserved and vulnerable groups, especially youth (age 13-24), migrant populations and people living with HIV (PLHIV).
In recent years MSI has made significant gains both nationally and internationally in increasing access to, and use of, modern family planning methods to achieve the social goal of preventing unintended pregnancies and unplanned births.
