Women's Heath: A Global View

FREE Seminar: Saturday, 25 April 2020, Leeds

Marie Stopes UK is excited to invite you to a unique and thought provoking seminar on our international work 

Marie Stopes UK is part of the Marie Stopes International partnership, a charity with 12,000 team members working in 37 countries to deliver its mission. Starting from one single clinic in London in 1976, the organisation has grown to become one of the world’s largest providers of high quality, affordable contraception and safe abortion services.

About the Seminar*

Marie Stopes International's Global Medical Director, Dr Dhammika Perera will examine the unmet need for family planning on a global scale, providing a unique insight in to the epidemiology of abortion and contraception, the outcome of which will challenge your thoughts and perceptions.

This session focuses on:

  • The global picture of abortion and contraception
  • How modern contraception, abortion and fertility rates interact
  • How abortion safety and practice differs around the globe
  • How the safety of pregnancy termination is assessed on a global scale
  • How UK practice in contraception and abortion differs from key global practices
  • The scale, services and governance of Marie Stopes International

Please join us on Saturday 25th April for this exciting session, followed by a networking brunch.

We look forward to welcoming you to this first in a series of events.

Marie Stopes International: 40 Years of choice

Find Out More About Our International Work

When we provide contraception to the women and men who need it most, we are giving them freedom to support their families, to continue with education, to work and grow, and to plan for the future. These are the pillars to lift them out of poverty.

When we choose to help them to access safe abortion services, we don’t make a political statement or decide what is right or wrong. We help them to stay safe and to return to their communities. When a woman needs post-abortion care following a backstreet abortion, we know that this is a health emergency, and never turn her away.

Marie Stopes International works predominantly in the developing world and over the last 40 years it has served more than 120 million of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable women, giving them the power to take control of their futures.

We’re incredibly proud of the work of all our colleagues across the world. From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe we’re all working to help women have children by choice, not chance.
