CONTRACEPTION

 

Our Work

  


 

In general, our contraception solutions support women, youth and the most fragile communities across the United States.  BHG has worked with partners across the US to collaborate with young people to reimagine and redefine the way sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) programs are designed, delivered, measured and evaluated.

Our work throughout the US has led to millions of condoms and lubricants of our in-house brand, b condoms to being distributed across the US.  BHG has distributed more than 40 million health products, resulting in more than 350,000 Couple-years of Protection (CYPs), 87,500 unplanned pregnancies averted and nearly 75 million in government taxpayer savings. .

 

FAMILY PLANNING

 

Family planning is a proven and cost-effective solution for improved maternal and child health. There are fewer choices in one’s life more profound than the decision to have a child. How many children to have, or whether to have children at all, deeply affects each couple, their communities, and the societies in which we all live.  Access to contraception prevents unintended, often high risk pregnancies — those that come too early, too often or too late in life — and reduces the number of abortions. Furthermore, healthy spacing of births leads to improved child survival. Women with the ability to control their fertility have better access to education and employment opportunities, bringing economic benefits and improved livelihoods to their families and communities.

STI & HIV Prevention



As the world continues to grapple with the HIV epidemic, BHG continues to be a leader in innovative marketing and education of contraceptive products. By providing consumers and governments with high quality, affordable options for health data, products and information, BHG plays an active role in the reduction of sexually transmitted infections.

BHG builds campaigns that promote healthier behaviors and lifestyles. Experience has taught us that promoting contraceptive products in an appealing way is more effective that simply emphasizing the health risks of unsafe relationships. Our goal is to provide new reasons for consumers to try and use contraceptive products. We do this by offering a wide array of health products to make sure we are responding to the needs of all of our target populations.

BHG focuses on those groups acknowledged to be especially at risk of HIV, including commercial sex workers, injecting drug users, at-risk communities, and men who have sex with men.
