History of Marie Stopes International 

Marie Stopes International was founded in 1976 by Dr. Tim Black, CBE and his wife Jean. Their vision was to make family planning services available to women and men around the world, based on their experiences of travelling to countries in Africa and Asia and seeing the impact of unplanned pregnancies first hand.

On returning to the UK from Papua New Guinea, Dr. Black took over the ailing Marie Stopes Clinic in Central London, which was once the Mothers’ Clinic set up by family planning pioneer Dr. Marie Stopes

Dr. Doctor Black was a pioneer institution building under the commercial business model and regarded all those who use the services are clients . This approach allowed him to open more clinics in the UK for 1 year , to meet the needs of thousands of women .

This approach allowed him to grow the enterprise so that he was able to open more clinics around Britain within a year, serving the previously unmet needs of thousands of women.  

The British clinics were such a success that shortly afterwards the organisation began working with partners overseas in Sri Lanka and Kenya. Marie Stopes International now works in 37 countries around the world.

First Marie Stopes Clinic was established in London, the United Kingdom


Marie Stopes Vietnam

Marie Stopes International came to Vietnam in 1989, named Marie Stopes Vietnam and established the first clinic in Nghe An. Through more than 30 years of operation, Marie Stopes Vietnam has become a leading non-governmental organization in the field of reproductive health care and family planning. We deliver quality reproductive health and family planning services through innovative program channels that provide more choices for women throughout Vietnam. 

Our primary motivation is to help women avoid unintended pregnancies and reduce the number of unsafe deliveries and unsafe abortions, two of the biggest killers of women around the world.
