The It Takes Two Industry Pledge

 

Dear reproductive health product industry,

 

I believe in the right for 222 million women to be able to plan their fertility so that they can plan their lives. As a contraceptive product company, I have an opportunity to accelerate progress on reducing maternal mortality, keeping girls in school, achieving equality for girls and women by investing in increasing global access to contraceptives, and calling on governments to invest more.

 

The private sector has a key role to play in increasing global investment for the reproductive rights of girls and women around the world.

 

By taking the It Takes Two Industry pledge and donating 2% of profits from products sold to family planning efforts, this will give world leaders a clear mandate to increase global investment for family planning, encourage progress on FP2020 commitments and compel other countries to do more in this area.   

 

It will take the full support of the public and private spheres to achieve contraceptive access for all.

 

I commit to the It Takes Two Industry pledge and show my leadership in this area.

 

Please join the Global Poverty Project and Women Deliver on the world stage in Central Park at the Global Citizen Festival 2013 and announce your commitment to increased global investment for the reproductive rights of girls and women around the world.  

 

Thank You

Thank you Global Citizens for calling on condom companies to make a commitment to further international family planning efforts.

 

Global Citizens took over 50,000 actions calling on leading condom companies to sign the 2 Percent Industry Pledge to help support the 222 million women around the globe with an unmet need for contraception. 

 

Thanks to your actions, we have had the following responses:

 

·       Naked Condoms committed to donate 2 million condoms to Uganda and give 20% of all future profits to family planning initiatives

 

·       ONE committed to invest 2% of all profits to projects in aid of girls and women and to partner with the It Takes Two campaign

 

·       WomanCare Global committed to donate 100,000 soft cups with a value of $250,000

 

·       The Female Health Company renewed their commitment to invest $14 million USD over the course of 3 years for family planning efforts and donate 5% of  all products, as well as partner with the It Takes Two campaign

 

·        L Condoms commited to providing 1 free condom for every condom sold to regions where women need contraception the most and donate 100,000 condoms to Swaziland – the region with the highest HIV/AIDs prevalence in the world

 

The movement is truly building, but we still need the commitment of major companies to create a significant impact.   

 

Today, we ask you to keep the pressure on Trojan, Lifestyles and Durex. Sign the petition on the top right of the page to show your support.
