Modern hormonal and prescription contraception is primarily focused on giving cisgender women, or people who identify as women who were also assigned female at birth, the means to protect themselves against an unintended pregnancy. While pills, patches, and IUDs are useful tools to help cis women control their fertility, they may fall short at protecting some cis men, trans, nonbinary, and intersex people. In recent years, there has been an increased awareness of sexual and reproductive health disparities adversely affecting LGBTQ populations.
Contraception Beyond the Gender Binary
Reproductive Autonomy For All
Male Contraceptive Initiative takes our mission seriously. We are constantly looking for ways to reach our goals and contribute to expansive contraception access.
After an internal review of how we convey our values, MCI realized it was time to update. We have updated our vision to "Reproductive Autonomy for All."
We believe that our work is more than just drug or product development. It's a mission to empower everyone with the freedom to choose how they manage their fertility, contraception, and family planning.
