The Role of Innovation
Innovation spurs new approaches to existing problems. This is needed to efficiently and effectively focus, develop, and test solutions that respond to this persistent, unsolved challenge in an equitable manner. The impact of integrating scientific/technological, social, and business innovation (known as Integrated Innovation) can transform the accessibility and effectiveness of safe abortion products and services by increasing access to existing methods of safe abortion, and developing new methods of safe abortion.
Feminist Investment Approach
The OPTions Initiative is in direct alignment with Canada’s Feminist International Assistance Policy, and applies a feminist investment approach that places an explicit focus on gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls in order to drive progress toward the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly Goal Five: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
