Poor and vulnerable

In 2015, we provided services to an estimated 50.6 million poor and vulnerable users. This was 82% of all our service users.

Member Associations provide information, education and services to people living in hard-to-reach areas.

IPPF has over 45,000 service delivery points, including mobile clinics and 55% of our service delivery points are in peri-urban or rural areas.

Under-served groups receive services from Member Associations because of a reluctance from public or private partners to work with them.

These groups include young people, sex workers, men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, sexually diverse populations and prisoners.

41 Member Associations use IPPF’s Vulnerability Assessment methodology to collect data on poverty and vulnerability status of service users.
