Business Integrity

Our business is driven by our vision for a world where everyone can access the high-quality health services they need, without financial burden.  

We view universal health coverage as the key to building a more inclusive, just and equitable world.

Gender equality and social change are at the forefront of our work. 

We are committed to the highest standards of ethical conduct and integrity in our business activities, and we provide an environment which safeguards all clients, sub-contractors, staff, consultants, volunteers and beneficiaries of our programmes.  

Our dignity at work policy sets the working culture for all staff, consultants and sub-contractors, all of whom uphold standards of behaviour set out in our Code of Conduct. We regularly review, update and roll out our policies, and apply a strong emphasis on those for ensuring high standards of Safeguarding, Whistleblowing and Anti-fraud and bribery. Fraud and bribery in any of our operations or in dealings with third parties is totally unacceptable.  

We set ourselves targets for diversity, equity and inclusion which we monitor to ensure that we live the values we espouse. 

Options values its membership of the UN Global Compact. Our Code of Conduct reflects the Labour Principles within Compact, specifically the upholding and protection of internationally proclaimed human rights.  

We also adopt a robust approach towards tackling modern slavery and human trafficking, for which our policy highlights our commitment towards zero tolerance and this includes any form of slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour in our own processes or that of our supply chain. 

Options cares about our environment.

We continually look at how to improve our practices to contribute to sustainability and limit any adverse impact on the environment. We expect all our contractors and partners to adopt the same high standards and take this into account through our due diligence procedures and include specific requirements, as necessary, in any contracts we issue. 

We support charities and community initiatives.

As part of MSI Reproductive Choices, all our profits go back into supporting MSI’s own mission of children by choice, not chance. In 2015, we established Options for International Health as a charitable entity to work alongside Options’ programmes to bring sustainable improvements in the health of women and children.
