WINGS' 2021 Overview

By Kirsten Taylor | Director of Development & Communications

WINGS 2021 Clinical Results
WINGS 2021 Clinical Results

We are so grateful to each of our supporters for celebrating our 20th anniversary with us throughout 2021. In the face of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we not only survived but thrived, albeit with a vastly different distribution of services than what we had originally projected. Leading up to 2020, tubal ligations had become one of our most sought-after services. But because hospital access was limited due to pandemic priorities, we could not offer the number of clinics originally intended. We provided 466 out of a projected 1,609 tubal ligations (29%). Fortunately, vasectomies can be performed in almost any clinical setting. As a result, we aimed to provide 580 and provided 945 vasectomies (163%). This is a true success story of 2021.

As is clearly visible from our Short-Acting Total, we nearly tripled our projection for short-acting contraceptive methods thanks to the efforts of our Youth Leader Program and Volunteer Promotor Network. We are grateful to these groups for their continuous dedication to serving their local communities despite the continual access challenges posed by the pandemic.

In addition to this clinical highlight, we also launched our first Community Advisory Board, established a legacy giving program, and grew our social media engagement of our Youth Peer Education Program. We did all of this while acting as a national leader in pandemic precaution adherence, as well as welcoming a new Executive Director.

These notable accomplishments in building an ever stronger community of supporters means that we can look forward to providing even more reproductive health services  over the next 20 years.

Thank you for being a part of this journey with us,

The entire team at WINGS Guatemala
