OPTions Initiative

The Options for Pregnancy Termination (OPTions) Innovative Initiative supports Bold Ideas with Big Impact.® 
We seek innovative and transformative approaches that put women and girls in control of where, when, and
how they terminate their pregnancy in countries where there are one or more legal grounds to support it.


The OPTions Initiative is awarding $250,000 grants for the development and testing of next-generation methods of pregnancy termination. Ideas at all stages are welcome – including very early stage – and innovators from all fields are encouraged to participate.
