CONTRIBUTION TO FAMILY PLANNING
Bayer is a Life Science company with a more than 150-year history and core competencies in the areas of health care and agriculture. For more than 50 years, Bayer has been supporting education programs and rights-based family planning in more than 130 countries, particularly with access to safe, modern forms of contraception. As a leader in women’s health, we have committed ourselves to help provide access to modern contraceptives for 100 million women per year around the world by 2030, and this is not limited to Bayer products. With a focus on women in LMICs, our aim is both to increase awareness of self-determined family planning and safeguard the availability and affordability of contraceptives.
