Impact of unintended pregnancies

Sandy Milligan, head of Research & Development, explores the impact family planning can have in this film produced for Organon by BBC StoryWorks Commercial Production. The short film tells the story of women, their families and the community of Xochimilco, Mexico, as they fight to reduce unintended pregnancies as part of a journey toward wellness.

Act with Her

We have a bold ambition to help reduce 120 million unintended pregnancies (UIPs) by 2030 in low- and middle-income countries.

Despite the many strides that have been made in enabling access to contraception, unintended pregnancies remain a significant global health issue. We are launching our roadmap to show how we will Act with Her to reduce UIPs worldwide.

Our Purpose Fuels Her Promise

Our purpose is inextricably linked to our company vision: to create a better and healthier day for every woman around the world. By addressing gender-related disparities in health, we build a more sustainable future for women, families, economies and society. Our environmental, social and governance goals focus on three areas: Her Equity, Her Planet, and Her Trust, and the issues that matter most to our stakeholders, our business, and most importantly, women around the world.

Her equity

Throughout the world, women have vast unmet medical needs. Our goal is to redefine and harness innovation to help women and girls achieve their promise and lead healthier, more empowered lives.

Her planet

Women are disproportionately affected by the impact of climate change. They are also more vulnerable to resource scarcity, which is why a healthy planet is important to helping women and girls achieve their promise.

Her trust

To fulfill her promise, we are working to promote balanced gender representation at all levels. We aim to reflect the gender equity within our company that we want to see in the world.


Her Promise. Her Future. Expanding Access to Family Planning Options Around the World

Organon is aiming to expand access to family planning options. Through our Her Promise Access Initiative, we work with organizations around the world to provide education, training and access to affordable contraceptive options in 69 of the world’s least developed countries.
