Children by Choice

We have made an important contribution to slowing the rate of world population growth and creating opportunities for women to choose when to have children and the family size they want.

Improving the availability of contraceptives is essential to this work. We work with governments, NGOs and other organisations, and support the subsidised social marketing of condoms and other contraceptives, in Cambodia, India, Latvia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Russia, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
