SRMH Projects

CARE has sexual, reproductive, and maternal health projects in 48 countries across Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Asia. In 2014, CARE reached approximately 37 million program participants in 2014, with high quality, rights-based sexual, reproductive and maternal health services. These programs support access to high-quality, comprehensive sexual and reproductive health counseling, education and services including contraception and voluntary family planning services; STI/HIV prevention and care; antenatal, maternal and newborn care; and postpartum, safe abortion and post-abortion care. Our programs utilize proven intervention approaches particular to context, partners and needs. We focus on poor and marginalized women and girls and on the inequalities that exist at all levels.
