Meet the Demand for Contraception and Reproductive Health

(Updated in 2019)

Sources:

  • 214 million women in developing countries have an unmet need for modern contraception (Guttmacher, 2017)
  • In developing regions, nearly half of pregnancies among adolescent girls and women, ages 15-19, are unintended (Guttmacher, 2016)
  • At least 22,800 women die each year from abortion related complications (Guttmacher, 2018)
  • Every US$1 spent on investing in contraceptive services in the developing world would save $2.20 in maternal and newborn healthcare from a decline in unplanned pregnancies (Guttmacher, 2017)
  • If the unmet need for modern contraception were met in developing regions and women and newborns received essential care, unintended pregnancies would drop by 75%, maternal deaths would decline by 73% and induced abortions would drop by 74% (Guttmacher, 2017)
