A total of 1500 LNG IUS have been provided to Marie Stopes International in Ethiopia since 2009. These devices have been incorporated into existing MSI service delivery sites, a network of approximately 20 clinics. In addition, LNG IUS is incorporated into MSIís outreach strategy in Ethiopia and this will likely increase availability and access to the method even further.

This donation contributes to MSIís organizational objective to offer safe, convenient, long-acting reversible family planning options for women in underserved communities.
