Founded in 1968, the Guttmacher Institute is a global leader in advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights. Through a unique and interrelated program of high-quality research, evidence-based advocacy and strategic communications, the Institute works to generate innovative ideas, encourage enlightened public debate and promote sound policy and program development. The Institute’s overarching goal is to ensure the highest standard of sexual and reproductive health and rights for all people worldwide. The Institute is engaged in building a more inclusive, transparent and equitable organization.


The Guttmacher Institute envisions a future in which all people can realize their rights and access the resources they need to achieve sexual and reproductive health. This vision is aligned with a progressive and evidence-based definition of SRHR, grounded in human rights, which holds that sexual and reproductive health is not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction or infirmity but a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being in all aspects of sexuality and reproduction. Guttmacher’s work is guided by the following overarching institutional values: Equity and Justice: Addressing historical and ongoing oppression on the basis of race, gender, sexuality, income, age, immigration status and other marginalized identities, as well as the compounded impact of multiple oppressions. Collaboration: Bringing a spirit of partnership and collective purpose, both to the Institute’s internal functioning and to external work with SRHR and intersectional allies and partners. Global View: Lifting up connections across SRHR issues and across different contexts throughout the world, rather than separating the U.S. experience from what happens on the rest of the globe. Integrity: Acting with fidelity to facts in priority-setting, research practices and communication of evidence. Nimbleness: Cultivating a readiness posture, being flexible and adaptive, and getting comfortable with uncertainty.
