To highlight the varied impacts of the COVID-19 crisis on GDC physicians' ability to provide care, we’ve interviewed three of our lead doctors in Brazil, Ghana, and Malta.


We are an international network of physicians advocating for access to safe reproductive health care for all.

Global Doctors for Choice (GDC) creates opportunities for doctors to engage in local reproductive health and rights initiatives that affect policy change in their communities. We help physicians learn from each other, building a network for global change.
