We run two organisations in Uganda: Marie Stopes International Uganda (MSIU) and Marie Stopes Uganda (MSU).
Both programmes work hard to increase access to family planning services throughout the country, although the way they deliver services differs.
While MSIU focuses on hard-to-reach marginalised and rural populations, MSU provides services through static clinics situated in urban areas.
Marie Stopes International Uganda (MSIU) is working by using a multi-pronged approach that delivers health impact at scale; uses a total market approach to maximise linkages across all levels of the health system; and innovates to increase programmatic efficiency and value for money.
The programme is a key implementing partner of the Ministry of Health, and receives funding from USAID, DFID, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
MSIU is contributing significantly to increasing the country's contraceptive prevalence rate through various channels, including:
Our team at Marie Stopes International Uganda also reaches the urban poor through mini-outreach teams on tricycle vehicles, which provide HIV and sexual health services to the most at risk populations and young people affected by HIV.
The family planning services offered in our centres are comprehensive, so the MSU team also provide medical consultation, specialist sexual and reproductive counselling, laboratory services, STI diagnosis and treatment, referral for HIV treatment, and post-abortion care.
The team also work with trained healthcare providers throughout the country to ensure that high quality, safe and affordable family planning options are available beyond our centres.
