A world in which all people are able to exercise their rights and responsibilities regarding sexual behavior and reproduction freely and with dignity.
Guttmacher’s program is guided by four overarching institutional values:
›› Commitment to rigor in our research and analysis and to publication of our findings, whatever the ramifications for policies and programs may be
›› Prioritizing the needs of disadvantaged groups and addressing inequities in access to and use of information and services
›› Addressing emerging questions to promote understanding and shape the public debate
›› Collaborating with others to maximize the reach and impact of our research and analysis
The Institute produces a wide range of resources on topics pertaining to sexual and reproductive health and publishes two peer-reviewed journals, Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health and International Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health, and the public policy journal Guttmacher Policy Review. In 2013, the Institute was awarded a prestigious Population Center grant by the National Institutes of Health in support of the Guttmacher Center for Population Research Innovation and Dissemination. Guttmacher is one of only two non-university-based institutions out of the two dozen receiving such funding.
