Everyone deserves equitable and comprehensive access to the contraceptive method of their choice without barriers, stigma or shame. The Guttmacher Institute conducts research and policy analysis on contraceptive use and access, including highlighting the need for public investment in high-quality, affordable and accessible contraceptive services.  


Investing in modern contraception is not only the right thing to do; it's also a smart investment. For every additional $1 invested in contraceptive services in low- and middle-income countries, the cost of pregnancy-related and newborn care is reduced by about $3.
