Women on bench

Every minute one woman in the world dies as a result of pregnancy. Many die from infections following illegal abortions or complications from pregnancy that could have been avoided with ordinary maternity and delivery health care. In 2000, UN member countries agreed eight millennium goals to halve poverty by 2015. Goal no. 5, which deals with reducing death in childbirth, has gone the worst. Few organisations focus on contraception and safe abortions as a way of reducing mortality among women. In our international work, we focus in particular on fighting for access to safe abortions in the world.

Our responsibility – to change lives

Changing and improving people’s lives has been the driving force for RFSU from the very start, and it still is. Through sex information, education and advocacy, we can overcome prejudices, bridge the knowledge gap and improve sexual health, both in Sweden and internationally. Safe contraception, legal abortions and sex on one’s own terms can still not be taken for granted everywhere. When you purchase our products, become a member or partner, or support the work of RFSU in some other way, you are helping to contribute to continued changes in people’s lives.
