Gynuity Health Projects is a research and technical assistance organization dedicated to the idea that all people should have access to the fruits of medical science and technology development. Our goal is to make reproductive health technologies more convenient, more acceptable, safer, and more widely accessible. We do this by:
- Conducting clinical, service delivery, and social science research to find more convenient, less expensive, safer, more acceptable ways to use existing technologies;
- Developing and introducing new technologies;
- Sponsoring meetings and policy dialogues to present new ideas to decisionmakers;
- Producing and disseminating accurate scientific information to policymakers, reproductive health professionals, and the public;
- Designing and conducting training seminars for professionals, including physicians, nurses, and midwives on reproductive technologies;
- Leading advisory and educational briefings for advocates, media, and donors;
- Generating data for regulatory filings and working with regulatory agencies; and
- Creating collaborative relationships with commercial entities to ensure widespread availability of reproductive technologies.
