WINGS' 2019 SERVICE PROVISION RECAP

WINGS 2019 Service Provision Results
WINGS 2019 Service Provision Results

WINGS experienced strategic growth in 2019 that is the beginning of incredible momentum as we aim to have a greater geographic and programmatic reach across Guatemala. In June 2019, we expanded into the Western Highlands where we now have a third mobile unit team that serves the departments of Huehuetenango, Quetzaltenango, and San Marcos. Providing services in remote areas of Guatemala allows us to fulfill our mission and to serve individuals who might otherwise have no access whatsoever to contraception.

We also solidified relationships with national health facilities based on the agreement that we signed with the Guatemalan Ministry of Health, which has allowed us to coordinate our services with the Ministry to serve communities with high unmet need by working directly with Ministry facilities. By partnering with local health posts and national hospitals, we assure that the communities we serve have both sufficient contraceptive inventory AND highly-trained medical providers to see patients.

Programmatically, we continued to focus on the provision of rights-based, patient-centered reproductive health education and services. The success of the LARCs First methodology (wherein contraceptive choices are explained in the order of their effectiveness) allowed us to realize a 41% increase in the number of adolescent patients using a long-acting reversible contraceptive (LARC). Our Youth-Friendly Space in Antigua had the busiest year yet and our monthly vasectomy clinics in Antigua grew in popularity.

Throughout the year, WINGS served a total of 24,450 individuals with contraceptive services and reproductive health education. 

All of these results would not be possible without the generous support of individuals like you form around the globe who believe, as we do, that IT ALL BEGINS WITH RPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS.

¡Mil gracias!
