Marie Stopes Ghana

Marie Stopes Ghana began providing contraception and safe abortion services in 2007. Since then they have become one of the country’s most trusted providers, helping more than 115,000 women each year.

Marie Stopes Ghana operates in every single region of the country, delivering services and information to the country’s underserved communities in a number of different ways:

  • Nine clinics in urban areas.
  • Six rural outreach teams and two urban outreach teams.
  • 136 private healthcare providers, operating under our BlueStar social franchise brand.
  • Social marketing of contraception.
  • A call centre, providing information and referrals .

Marie Stopes Ghana have been providing services since 2007, helping more than 115,000 women each year to choose when they have children.

Preventing unsafe abortion

Marie Stopes Ghana is working closely with the Government of Ghana to reduce unsafe abortion and ensure that more women are able to access the contraception that will allow them to take control of their futures.

The programme’s clinic network allows women to access safe abortion services, meaning fewer women are forced to risk the potentially devastating consequences of an unsafe abortion. The clinics also act as training centres, increasing the skills of other healthcare providers.

Helping women in remote areas

There is still huge unmet need for contraception in Ghana. A large proportion of women still want to control the number of children that they have but are unable to get the contraception that will allow them to do that.

Marie Stopes Ghana’s rural outreach teams are playing a critical part in helping to meet this need. By providing a full range of contraception they are able to help women in remote areas to choose if and when they have children.

Elizabeth Pappoe – Marie Stopes Ghana team member

I enjoy maternal and reproductive health a lot, as women are special.

Gifty Danwah – Market porter and client

I hadn’t used contraception before Marie Stopes. I said to myself this will change my life, and it has.

Dina Appiah

Without Marie Stopes I don’t know where I would be, maybe I’d be dead.
