Since 1957, Pathfinder International has worked in more than 70 countries, partnering with public health systems to offer quality, accessible sexual and reproductive health care and contributing to healthy communities. We are pioneers. Pathfinder developed some of the first programs to improve adolescent and youth sexual and reproductive health, engage religious leaders as champions of family planning, and reach women in isolated settings with modern contraception. Our programs foster gender equality—allowing millions of women and girls, each year, to decide whether or when to have children and involving men and boys in respecting and supporting their choices. Last year, alone, our programs averted more than 4.8 million unintended pregnancies and engaged more than 5.5 million adolescents and youth in contraceptive counseling and services.
