Just the Numbers

The Guttmacher Institute has released a new ‘Just the Numbers’ report on Canada’s investment in family planning and the significant impacts associated with investment in comprehensive contraceptive care.

The report sheds light on the incredible return on investment associated with support for contraceptive care, a chronically underfunded and neglected area of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). According to Guttmacher, for every $1 spent on contraception, there is a cost savings of $2.20 in maternal and newborn health care due to declines in unintended pregnancies.
