Provide further details of the charity's international activities:
Marie Stopes International Australia has partner organisations in Timor-Leste, Papua New Guinea and Cambodia where we provide sexual and reproductive health services to women, girls and their families. MSIA operates as a support mechanism for partners including technical assistance, project management, clinical/organisational, programmatic, partner capacity building, education, training and fundraising.
Description of charity's activities and outcomes:
As part of the Marie Stopes International global partnership, Marie Stopes International Australia (MSIA) supports three countries in the Asia-Pacific region; Timor-Leste, Papua New Guinea and Cambodia. Here we find some of the highest fertility rates in the Asia-Pacific region, and so we are working to increase contraceptive prevalence, and reduce unintended pregnancies and prevent maternal mortality in the region. Contraception can be transformational and at the most basic level contributes to the achievement of sexual and reproductive health rights, womens rights and gender equality. The broader benefits are undeniable. Contraceptive education, information and services for women and girls in developing countries can have significant health, societal and economic benefits for individuals, families, communities and countries. If a woman can access contraception she can make decisions about her future, help support her family and contribute to her community. If a girl has access to contraception, she may choose to stay in school, pursue higher education and be more likely to participate in the formal economy. We know that each additional year of schooling increases a womans future earnings by at least 10 per cent.
