Organon dou­bles down on mis­sion to pre­vent un­planned preg­nan­cies with $30M in­vest­ment

Near­ly half of preg­nan­cies world­wide are un­planned, and far too of­ten, women re­ly on “Dr. YouTube” for their in­for­ma­tion on con­tra­cep­tives, Organon’s ex­ec­u­tive VP of ex­ter­nal af­fairs and ESG Ger­a­lyn Rit­ter said.

The Mer­ck spin­out is com­mit­ting $30 mil­lion to change that.

Organon on Wednes­day un­veiled its three-year “Her Plan is Her Pow­er” ini­tia­tive to sup­port sex­u­al and re­pro­duc­tive health (SRH) ed­u­ca­tion, ac­cess and in­no­va­tion around the world. That in­cludes the in­au­gur­al launch of a glob­al grants pro­gram and a col­lab­o­ra­tion with UNF­PA, the UN’s sex­u­al and re­pro­duc­tive health agency.
