Poverty Reach Desk Review and Identifying and recommending strategies for increased poverty focus on service delivery

Closing date

IPPF (International Planned Parenthood Federation) is a global service provider and a leading advocate of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) for all focusing on the marginalized and underserved. IPPF provides SRHR services in 133 countries and runs approximately 65,000 service points worldwide. It seeks to influence governments and other key decision-making bodies make policy and legislative changes that support or defend SRHR. IPPF also conducts a range of education, awareness, and empowerment programmes that support its key mandate of SRHR for all. IPPF works to empower the most vulnerable women, men, and young people to access lifesaving health services and programmes. Supported by millions of volunteers and 3,000 staff, IPPF Member Associations (MAs) are autonomous, local non-profit organizations that provide sexual and reproductive health (SRH) information, education, and services through 46,000 service delivery points, delivering 208.6 million sexual and reproductive health services across the world in 2017. Services provided include contraception, abortion care, maternal and child health and STI and HIV/AIDS prevention and care. 

The Women’s Integrated Sexual Health (WISH2ACTION – W2A) programme is IPPF’s flagship health programme designed to transform the lives of millions of women and girls. Funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), the £132 million WISH2ACTION programme is providing integrated and holistic healthcare to 2.2m additional users of contraception in 15 countries across South/East Africa and South Asia between 2018 to 2021. The programme is currently being delivered by a consortium of five internationally recognised organisations and 10 IPPF Member Associations (MAs). Programme coordination is being managed by a Secretariat Hub, hosted by IPPF’s Africa Regional Office (ARO) in Nairobi, Kenya.

WISH is a payment by result programme and its performance is being measured through Key Performance Indicators (KPI) that include Couple Year Protection (CYP), Additional Users (AU), proportion of under 20-year-olds and proportion of people living in poverty (under $1.90 benchmark) reached with SRH services through the programme. A 100% achievement in poverty is when the proportion of clients reached through services is equal to or above the national poverty benchmark as evidenced through Client Exit Interview of sampled clients for client exit interviews.
