IPPF is changing. By choice. For choice.
IPPF’s Member Associations overwhelmingly gave their support for radical reform of the Federation, at a historic General Assembly in New Delhi. It will pave the way for us to move forward and build a Federation that is more agile, transparent and most importantly, one that will better serve the people we are here for.
Tanzania: Fighting back against the Global Gag Rule

With the introduction of the Belgian funded, She Decides programme, relationships with impacted communities are slowly being rebuilt.
