Charity profile

Marie Stopes South Africa opened the door of our first centre in 1993 and have grown to become the largest non-profit provider of sexual and reproductive healthcare services in the country. Through a nationwide network of centres our team of passionate professionals deliver high quality clinical services that support our mission to empower women and couples to have children by choice not chance. 

Our centres offer: 

  • A wide range of contraceptives
  • Safe abortion care
  • Emergency contraception
  • Well woman exams
  • Pregnancy tests
  • Pap smears
  • HIV counselling and testing
  • Treatment of sexually transmitted infections (STIs)

We are part of the 38 country-strong Marie Stopes International Global Partnership, allowing us access to the latest innovations and expertise in the field of sexual and reproductive health.

As a registered non-profit company (NPC) the  fees we charge for our services are cross-subsidised across our network, meaning centres are able to offer prices that best suit the communities they serve. Any surplus we generate is reinvested back into our core work, allowing us to grow our reach and range of services.
