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

Being a woman I believe that it is definitely not fair that most of the prevention of pregnancy is dependent upon the woman only.

We are calling on reproductive health product companies – starting with condom companies - to take the lead in supporting increased access for contraceptive services around the world by donating 2% of profits from products sold to family planning initiatives.  

Ask condom companies to support access to contraception for girls and women by tweeting at Durex, Trojan and Lifestyles to join the Two Percent Industry Pledge!

Why?

222 million girls and women in the developing world to have an unmet need for contraception, family planning services and information.

Giving women and girls access to contraceptives is transformational – families become healthier, better educated, and wealthier. When women have access to contraceptives they are able to plan their lives, stay in school, and escape poverty. Every dollar spent on family planning can save governments up to $6 on health, housing, water, and other public services.

For companies participating in the Two Percent Industry Pledge, the 2% will go towards advocacy efforts to increase access to contraceptives for an additional 120 million women around the world, enabling them to plan their fertility, so they can plan their lives. The funds raised through this campaign will go to It Takes Two  or other family planning initiatives that will build on the momentum from the London Summit on Family Planning in July 2012 where $2.6 billion was pledged to reduce the unmet need for contraception.    

By taking a strong stand and calling for other private sector organizations to join in making pledges towards family planning, the reproductive health product industry will give world leaders a clear mandate to increase global investment for family planning and encourage progress on FP2020 commitments.

Join us in calling on all reproductive health product companies – starting with condom companies - to donate 2% of profits from products sold to family planning efforts that can help reduce the global unmet need for family planning services and information.   

Ask condom companies to support access to contraception for girls and women by tweeting at Durex, Trojan and Lifestyles and asking them to join the pledge! Join us in enabling 222 million women to plan their lives. Join the Two Percent Industry Pledge.
