Seema Jalan

Executive Director, Universal Access Project

Seema Jalan is the Executive Director of the Universal Access Project, which works to empower girls and women by improving their access to reproductive health and family planning services globally. The Universal Access Project, together with the community of sexual and reproductive health and rights organizations it supports, has helped advocate for and protect more than $600 million in U.S. funding for international reproductive health and family planning that in 2016 provided 27 million women with access to life-saving contraceptive services and supplies. Now, with U.S. support for these services in jeopardy, the Universal Access Project is rallying the global women’s health advocacy community together to send one cohesive message: every girl and every woman deserves the opportunity to determine her own future.
