Marie Stopes International (MSI), a sexual and reproductive health (SRH) organisation, has produced a three-part guide based on the conviction that poverty and SRH are intrinsically linked. MSI contends that poverty is not only a cause of poor SRH but also a consequence of it. If this destructive cycle is to be broken, MSI believes, it is critical that the poorest are able to access affordable, quality SRH services. For this to happen, the poorest must first be identified.
