ICA Foundation has worked with ACCESSO SUALC to provide 1,500 LNG IUS to local non-profit as well as public-funded clinics in both urban and rural areas of Ecuador. Fundacion Accesosualc (Fundacion Acceso a Servicios Universales de Anticoncepcion y Repruduccion Latinoamerica), located in Quito, distributes LNG IUS to partnering organizations offering maternal health services throughout the country.

ACCESSO SUALC currently works with APROFE, government hospitals, and a network of rural health providers, to distribute LNG IUS. The organization employs direct assistance to support poor women’s access to maternal health service from qualified providers regardless of whether they are private, public or NGO providers. The foundation is eager to expand the contraceptive mix available to underserved groups of the population.
