At Marie Stopes South Africa, we strive to give women in South Africa control over their own health and fertility without fear of stigma, coercion or violence.
Beyond the core services we provide in our static centres, we offer additional sexual and reproductive information and services to underserved communities across the country.
These initiatives have been supported by corporate, government, international (including the Canadian International Development Agency and the European Commission) donors, other non-profit organisations and generous Marie Stopes South Africa clients.
Partnerships are central to our work to improve access to sexual and reproductive health information and services.
We work together with medical and business partners, other non-profits, government, academic institutions and civil society to enhance the equity and quality of sexual and reproductive health services.
We are constantly engaging with our clinical colleagues, both domestically and internationally, to achieve and deliver top tier, innovative clinical quality to our clients.

A voice for choice
Marie Stopes South Africa is passionately pro-choice. We support a woman’s right to choose to terminate an unwanted pregnancy, young people’s right to exercise their sexuality and every individual’s right to live their sexual life safely and freely regardless of their sexual orientation.
We promote equal access to safe, legal and quality sexual and reproductive healthcare through awareness events, community dialogues, research and advocacy.
