Blue Door Society

MSI’s Blue Door is a trusted sign for millions of women and girls.

The Blue Door Society is a vital source of revenue that keeps MSI programs running and helps them grow for greater impact. This is particularly crucial in the face of gaps created by the loss of US Government funding due to President Trump’s Global Gag Rule, which penalizes MSI because we provide safe abortions.

As a Blue Door Society member, you unite your philanthropy with others -

Creating a powerful force to safeguard reproductive choice and ensure that women and girls in many of the poorest, most marginalized areas of the world have access to contraception and safe abortion. By taking action together, Blue Door Society members ensure that MSI’s Blue Door will always be open to the millions of women and girls around the world who want control over their own bodies, access to reproductive healthcare and opportunities to pursue their dreams.

Region Spotlight

Sahel, Africa

Each year, through tailored communications and special events, the Blue Door Society will learn about a country or region where MSI delivers contraception and safe abortion services.

In 2020, we will focus on the Sahel, a region of sub-Saharan Africa where MSI has been working since 2008. Stretching from Senegal to Djibouti, the Sahel has incredible potential thanks to its young population, natural resources and willing partners. But the region also faces significant challenges – including high rates of pregnancy-related deaths, social and cultural barriers to sexual and reproductive health services, limited access to quality care and some of the worst experiences of the climate crisis.

To help tackle these problems, MSI has been delivering services in Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger and Senegal by:

  • Working alongside government healthcare providers.
  • Sending outreach teams to remote and underserved areas, where government healthcare services don’t reach people in need.
  • Supporting mobile midwives, our MS Ladies.
  • Building networks of private providers able to deliver reproductive health services.
  • Selling sexual and reproductive health products through commercial channels.

In 2019,

32 million women were using an MSI method of contraception

Our services prevented

13 million unintended pregnancies

6.5 million unsafe abortions

35,000 pregnancy-related deaths
