About Us

WHO ARE WE?

#BlueRibbon is a non-profit platform developed to champion womenʼs rights with greater emphasis on womenʼs rights to safe pregnancy options. Launched initially as a campaign under the “My body. My choice” slogan in 2019, we have grown into a service initiative which aims to empower women by providing information about accessibility to womenʼs healthcare facilities throughout South Africa.

We operate under Marie Stopes, a 38-country strong International Global partnership which grants us access to the latest innovations and expertise in the field of sexual and reproductive health

We're mobilizing thousands of people to build a world where no woman will have to sacrifice their Life, family or freedom, safety or dignity, because of what they choose to do with their bodies.

An estimated 68,000 women in low-income countries die each year from complications of unsafe abortions with over 40% of those deaths occurring in Africa. It is our mandate as Blue Ribbon to raise awareness about womenʼs legal rights to safe pregnancy choices in South Africa.

As #BlueRibbon, we are working towards tackling stigma associated with womenʼs Sexual Health topics. Stigma related to womenʼs reproductive decision-making negatively impacts the health of women as they fear seeking the appropriate services which we provide. Through the stories shared by our ambassadors and champions, we will help spread the movement and share accurate information within every community.

You too can be a #BlueRibbon Champion by sharing your story and expertise. Our network of champions includes ALL women; researchers; human rights activists; feminists; scientists; authors; doctors; journalists and so much more

We launched our first #BlueRibbon clinic in Potchefstroom on 8 January 2020 to enhance sexual and reproductive health services for women in the community staffed by highly trained medical professionals. Our clinics provide quality and affordable SRH services in a judgement-free environment with assured safety and confidentiality.

We have various campaigns where we offer the same professional care including STI Screening, Testing, Contraception and HIV testing by utilizing the #BlueRibbon Container Clinics we are rolling out. This drive is of great importance as it aims to increase accessibility to ALL South African women.
