Elena, age 41, from SololĂĄ,

Mother of 5 who received a WINGS-subsidized Jadelle implant In Guatemala, indigenous women like Elena, who live in remote rural areas, face many barriers – religion, poverty, and machismo, among others - to accessing reproductive health services. In these communities, less than 16% of women have access to modern contraceptive methods and the average family has 6 children.


FAMILY PLANNING Many women in Guatemala enter sexual relationships at young ages. Most receive no sex education and lack access to reproductive health services should they become pregnant. These young women have few resources and either face high-risk pregnancies and single-motherhood or, as is common in Guatemala, turn to illegal abortion, a leading cause of maternal mortality.

Conducting education outreach and providing access to contraceptives methods are equally critical to reaching our goal of healthier Guatemalan families. :,1*6¡)DPLO\3ODQQLQJ3URJUDPRXUROGHVWDQG ODUJHVWLQLWLDWLYHDLPVWRHQVXUHWKDW*XDWHPDODQV DUHDEOHWRPDNHYROXQWDU\LQIRUPHGIDPLO\ SODQQLQJGHFLVLRQVDQGKDYHDFFHVVWRFRQWUDFHSWLYH PHWKRGVZKHQGHVLUHG ,Q:,1*6�VL[IDPLO\SODQQLQJHGXFDWRUV SURYLGHGIDPLO\SODQQLQJLQIRUPDWLRQWKURXJK KHDOWKWDONVFRXQVHOLQJVHVVLRQVDQGKRPHYLVLWV WRQHDUO\LQGLYLGXDOVLQXQGHUVHUYHG

Reducing unplanned pregnancies has profound health, economic, and social benefits for Guatemalan families and communities: high risk pregnancies are less frequent and women’s health is protected; child health indicators improve; illegal abortion rates decrease; and, there are fewer strains on already limited family, community and environmental resources.

A lack of youth-appropriate sex education and pervasive socio-cultural barriers, including low literacy rates, poor access to education, and marked economic inequalities, contribute to nearly 50% of Guatemalan women having a child by age 20.


CERVICAL CANCER In Guatemala, cervical cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths among women 25 years and older and the most frequently diagnosed cancer among women of all ages. &HUYLFDOFDQFHULVDOPRVWHQWLUHO\SUHYHQWDEOH ZKHUHHIIHFWLYHVFUHHQLQJSURJUDPVDUH LPSOHPHQWHG'HVSLWHJRYHUQPHQWDOSURPLVHV WRLQFUHDVHFHUYLFDOFDQFHUVFUHHQLQJ*XDWHPDOD FRQWLQXHVWRVXIIHUIURPDODUPLQJO\KLJK FHUYLFDOFDQFHUUDWHV:LWKDIRFXVRQVHUYLQJ *XDWHPDODQZRPHQGLVSURSRUWLRQDWHO\ LPSDFWHGE\FHUYLFDOFDQFHUยณWKHSRRUUXUDO DQGLQGLJHQRXVยณ:,1*6ยท&HUYLFDO&DQFHU 3UHYHQWLRQDQG7UHDWPHQW3URJUDPSURYLGHV KHDOWKHGXFDWLRQOLIHVDYLQJGHWHFWLRQVHUYLFHV DVZHOODVIROORZXSWUHDWPHQWZKHQ DEQRUPDOLWLHVDUHGHWHFWHG ,QRYHUZRPHQZHUHVFUHHQHGDQG WUHDWHGZKHQQHFHVVDU\IRUFHUYLFDO
