In mountainous Papua New Guinea, there often aren’t roads to reach the most remote communities. But since 2006, MSI Papua New Guinea’s intrepid outreach teams have traveled by plane and boat to deliver sexual and reproductive healthcare to women in need.
Use of modern contraception remains low in the country, and pregnancy-related deaths are tragically common. But as the largest provider of contraception in the country, MSI has played a crucial role in increasing the contraceptive prevalence rate and enabling more women to decide if and when to become pregnant.
In addition to outreach efforts, MSI embeds specialist family planning nurses in Provincial Hospitals and trains public health workers to provide all methods of contraception. We also operate a network of centers.
