Our Impact

CHANGE is a human rights organization, tirelessly advocating for sexual and reproductive health and rights for all.

We are determined in our pursuit of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) for all, in particular for women, girls, and others who are discriminated against. We hold the U.S. government accountable to its global commitments toward gender equality and sexual and reproductive health and rights for all.

We do this by shaping U.S. and global policies, pulling people, coalitions and issues together in new and powerful ways, and elevating the voices of those who are discriminated against.

We take risks and adopt bold, innovative communication strategies to achieve our policy objectives and change the public conversation. We elevate the voices of people who are most affected by U.S. global health policy by providing space and training to help them tell their own stories.

And CHANGE gets results.

Together with our partners, bold advocacy for SRHR has led to:
  • The voices of hundreds of experts and advocates from across Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean have been elevated in Washington, D.C., speaking truth to power with decision makers in Congress and the Administration

  • $385 million commitment made by the U.S. government to prevent HIV infections among adolescent girls and young women in sub-Saharan Africa
  • Increased Congressional support for U.S. funding for abortion access overseas for women and girls raped in conflict and crisis situations
  • The U.S. government formally recognizing and adopting “sexual and reproductive health and rights”
  • The elimination of rights-violating policies in U.S. global AIDS programs that targeted marginalized populations such as women living with HIV and female sex workers
  • Greater visibility of women in the media, including sex workers, women living with HIV and young women, advocating for sexual and reproductive health and rights for all.

As an organization located in the Global North, CHANGE is aware of our disproportionate power and privilege in the global context. In our advocacy and partnerships we strive to shed the legacy of oppression and racism in the United States and its actions around the world. Diversity, equity, and inclusion — and specifically racial equity — is something we aspire to and we welcome the conversation.
