Pathfinder International is driven
by the conviction that all people, regardless of where they live, have
the right to decide whether and when to have children, to exist free
from fear and stigma, and to lead the lives they choose. Since 1957, we
have partnered with local governments, communities, and health systems
in developing countries to remove barriers to critical sexual and
reproductive health services. Together, we expand access to
contraception, promote healthy pregnancies, save women’s lives, and stop
the spread of new HIV infections, wherever the need is most urgent. Our
work ensures millions of women, men, and young people can choose their
own paths forward.
