In 2012, Bayer HealthCare committed to providing more than US$8.4 million in financial support to increase contraceptive awareness and knowledge about sexual and reproductive health among adolescents and youth worldwide through the provision of medically accurate and unbiased sexual education via national, regional, and global programs. In addition, Bayer committed to improving—in collaboration with other civil society organizations, NGOs, advocacy groups, and governments—the sexual and reproductive health of young people with the goal of ensuring that every pregnancy is wanted. Bayer also expanded its youth-centric health programs focusing on the “positive disruptions” made by young leaders in family planning to increase media coverage of young leaders’ achievements in policy agenda setting, resource mobilization, and program work, and to enhance the visibility of family planning as a core contributor to the global development agenda.
