MSH is a nonprofit, international health organization with nearly 2,500 people from over 74 nationalities working in over 40 countries. Our mission is to save lives and improve the health of the world's poorest and most vulnerable people by closing the gap between knowledge and action in public health. Together with our partners, we help leaders, managers, health workers, and communities in developing countries to build stronger health systems that deliver high-quality health services to everyone who needs them.
The FCI Program of MSH partners with allies and champions in governments and communities to advocate for policies and programs that advance sexual and reproductive health and rights around the world. Calling for universal access to high-quality, culturally respectful care, the FCI Program of MSH builds advocacy skills of civil society partners and networks in countries and communities, and works to increase equity by reaching young people, indigenous groups, and other underserved populations. Approaching health issues with a gender-focused, rights-based approach, the FCI Program of MSH develops and communicates compelling advocacy messages based on a foundation of evidence, and works with partners to hold countries accountable for fulfilling their promises to provide equitable, high-quality care.
