International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) is a global sexual and reproductive health service provider and one of the leading advocates for universal access to sexual, reproductive health and rights (SRHR) for all. We are a worldwide movement of 149 national organizations working with and for communities and individuals and, together, have delivered more than 1 billion cumulative services over the last 6 years. 

We are now looking for people to join us and make our Come Together–Strategy 2028, a reality. Revolutionising IPPF, placing it in a stronger position to support SRHR for those who are left out, locked out or left behind. Come Together commits IPPF to shaping laws, policies and norms through feminist action and international solidarity; and to strengthen the federation adding new drive for real and lasting impact.

Action is urgent. We have delivered. We have stood for justice and equality. We commit to more daring and feminist action that secures choices about our bodies, sexual lives, and well-being. Everyone should enjoy a pleasure-filled and healthy sex life and a life free from violence, shame or criminalisation. We know love is love. And we come together in support of women, youth, and people who are marginalised and excluded. Through the care we deliver, the actions we take, and the solidarity we foster. 

  • IPPF is an equal-opportunity employer. As a leading global human rights organization focused on equality, empowerment, ending discrimination, and poverty eradication, we internally reflect social justice principles. We, as IPPF, strongly oppose racism in all its forms and resolutely go for a cultural change that will shift the existing imbalances in power and process. 


  • We are a multi-cultural, multi-lingual, intergenerational and diverse work environment.  Applications are particularly encouraged from women, people living with HIV, people living with disability and people with diverse SOGIESC.


  • IPPF is committed to the safety and protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults and our safer recruitment and selection procedures reflect this commitment.  We expect all employees, volunteers, contractors and partners to share this commitment and anyone employed by IPPF agrees to sign up to our Code of Conduct and Safeguarding (Children and Vulnerable Adults) Policy.
