The world population, which has reached 7.3 billion in 2015, is likely to keep on growing over the rest of the century unless a rapid and substantial reduction in the number of children borne by women in high-fertility countries is achieved soon. Those countries are home to the majority of the 225 million women who wish to delay or stop childbearing but who are not using contraception. Satisfying that unmet need for effective modern contraception would not only improve the lives of millions of women, their children, and their families, but would also reduce future population growth and thereby the human footprint on the environment.
