Creating Equitable Access

We are a nonprofit pharmaceutical organization working toward a world where all women have access to the medicines they need.

Our Mission

To catalyze equitable access to

medicines & devices through

product development, policy advocacy,

and collaboration with U.S. and

global partners.

Our Purpose

All women, regardless of socio-economic status, race, ethnicity, or background deserve access to medicines and the stability it provides in order to support their physical health and wellbeing.
However, current systems have failed to ensure that all women have reliable and equitable access to necessary medicines and quality healthcare. This results in a host of complex, interrelated challenges to access, precluding many women from life-altering medicines.
Despite increases in insurance coverage in the U.S., many women still lack meaningful access to medicine because of high out-of-pocket costs and limitations in the medications that insurers will cover
Nearly 13.9 million women across the U.S. live in poverty. More than 10.3 million women are completely uninsured, and roughly 15 million women rely on Medicaid for health coverage1
Reimbursement for family planning care at publicly funded clinics in the U.S. fails to keep pace with the costs of buying and stocking women’s health products and providing related services
Investment in women’s health research and drug development – including birth control and treatments for common conditions such as uterine fibroids, menopause symptoms, and pelvic pain has been historically limited
In 2019, it is estimated that 218 million women had an unmet need for modern contraception worldwide , with 27% aged 15-24 and 60% living in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia2
