About International Planned Parenthood Federation

Established in 1952, the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) is one of the world’s foremost Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) organisations, championing SRHR and providing lifesaving sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services for more than 70 years. IPPF’s vision is a world where all people are free to make choices about their sexuality and well-being in a world without discrimination.

IPPF’s services are rights-based, gender-sensitive, client-centred, evidence-based and stigma-free. IPPF contributes to the SRHR of all people by (1) increasing access and choice through the provision of integrated SRH services, information and education; (2) contributing to strengthening health systems; and (3) advocating to change policy and laws in support of sexual and reproductive health.

Through IPPF’s worldwide movement of 119 national organisations – called Member Associations (MAs) – and our collaborative partners, we work in over 126 countries to reach poor and marginalised women and girls and vulnerable populations such as people living with disabilities and in humanitarian emergencies. This gives IPPF a global presence unparalleled among other SRHR Civil Society Organisations (CSOs).
