Options Consultancy Services was established in 1992 as a wholly owned subsidiary of the international social business, Marie Stopes International. Our initial work centred around providing technical expertise, programme design monitoring and evaluation support to DFID as the Resource Centre in Population and Reproductive Health. Improving access to reproductive and maternal health services remains a core area of our work.
The Millennium Development Goals placed a strong emphasis on maternal and child health, and improving the health of women and girls has remained central to Options’ mission. Our work has grown to encompass expertise across the health sector in order to build effective and equitable health systems.
