THE STORY:

Why is Family Planning Important? 

Family Planning is critical to promoting gender equality and supporting healthier families; by enabling women to delay, space, and prevent pregnancy, family planning gives women the opportunity to stay in school longer, seek employment to secure economic independence, and invest in the health and education of their children.  

  • Guatemala is ranked a dismal 116 out of 135 countries for gender equality, reflecting the lack of control women have over  their own health and education and their inability to access economic and political opportunities.
  • One out of two children in Guatemala is currently suffering from chronic malnutrition, which is closely linked the country-wide lack of available family planning information and services.  
  • Access to family planning can reduce maternal deaths by as much as 35%, deaths among infants by as much as 10%-20%, and unsafe abortions by 70%.
  • The average Guatemalan woman has 4.1 children, the poorest 20% of Guatemalan women average 6 children, and indigenous families in some regions of Guatemala average 10 children.  
  • By 2025, the current annual number of new cases and deaths associated with cervical cancer are expected to nearly double in Guatemala. Only 10% of Guatemalan women have ever been screened for this easily prevented cancer.
  • In WINGS’ target area, 79.83% of the population live below the poverty line and 43.51% live in a state of extreme poverty which means their annual income of $410 does not meet their basic need for food.

How You Can Help:

A little support goes along way with WINGS.

  • WINGS can provide Jadelle, a reversible contraceptive implant, for $20, protecting a woman from unintended pregnancy for up to 5 years.
  • For just $60, WINGS can help a woman undergo a voluntary tubal ligation.
  • $100 will allow WINGS to provide 16 women with a year's supply of oral contraceptives, allowing them to take control of their reproductive health.
  • WINGS can screen and treat 10 women for cervical cell abnormalities for $250, helping them prevent cervical cancer.
