S website:

Our landmark publication, “Our Bodies, Ourselves,” first published in 1971, has sold millions of copies and received numerous honors…. OBOS’s Global Initiative provides support for and works closely with women’s groups around the world that choose to adapt “Our Bodies, Ourselves” for their own countries and communities. These remarkable adaptions now exist in 30 languages — and counting. Working in collaboration with U.S. and global organizations, OBOS vigorously advocates for women’s health by challenging institutions and systems that devalue women and prevent them from having full control over their bodies and their health.

 It remains one of the few health groups that doesn’t accept funds from pharmaceutical companies. OBOS’s health information, both in book format and online, meets international standards for health research.
