Lesotho Planned Parenthood Association

One of IPPF’s central beliefs is that processes and approaches need to be adapted to meet the specific needs of a country. In Lesotho, a country with one of the highest HIV prevalence rates in the world, LPPA is very active in finding new ways to address neglected needs. LPPA provides a comprehensive range of sexual and reproductive health including: family planning, the management of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), screening for cancers of the reproductive system, the distribution of contraceptives and emergency contraceptives, pregnancy testing, post-abortion care, voluntary counselling and testing (VCT) and the management of infections. Clients are referred to other centres for CD4 tests and ARV treatment.  LPPA reaches out to the communities it serves through 47 service points: 10 permanent clinics, 9 private providers, 30 associated agencies, 90 peer educators and 14 community-based distributors (CBDs). There are 54 permanent staff who are supported by over 200 volunteers. An estimated 75% of LPPA's clients are poor, marginalized, socially excluded and/or under-served. Target groups include cattle herders, prisoners, rural populations, factory workers, university students, police trainees and people living with HIV and AIDS.  LPPA targets out-of-school children, and disseminates SRH information through drama, puppetry, sports for life, and facilitated discussions. Other education programmes include health talks, workshops, performances and radio and TV shows. In advocacy, LPPA reaches out to teachers, religious leaders and government leaders to promote favourable approaches to, and legislation on, SRH.  LPPA has influential partnerships with government health and population departments, and it partners with major non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Donors include Irish Aid, UNDP, the Japan Trust Fund, and IPPF’s Korea Africa Fund. The Member Association has strong linkages with other organizations across the country, particularly in relation to HIV and AIDS.

Mauritius Family Planning & Welfare Association

Established in 1957 as a grass-root movement, the Mauritius Family Planning & Welfare Association (MFPWA) was one of the earliest organizations in Africa focusing on family planning issues. As the nation struggled to find a way to address pressing population issues, a group of advocates formed MFPWA and started to provide contraceptive services directly to women. In 2018 the MFPWA is governed by an Act of Parliament 2018 as a body corporate.  Today, the organization caters for the sexual and reproductive health (SRH) needs of the whole community. It also has particular strands of activity relating to specific groups including sexually abused children, elderly people, men and marginalized populations on Rodrigues and Agalega Islands.   MFPWA has 30 staff and 50 volunteers and offers services through 2 permanent facilities and several service points.  It also runs a day care centre for infants and children as a social enterprise initiative. The Association delivers services that include family planning, the prevention and management of HIV through voluntary counselling and testing, infertility management, antenatal and post-natal care, post-abortion care, the diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and screening for cancers of the reproductive systems in particular breast, cervical and prostate.  The Association began its first rehabilitation of sexually abused children in 2003 and has built a solid reputation in the domain. Services for the rehabilitation of victims of gender based violence had been extended to Rodrigues Island on a pilot basis in 2019. The Member Association also operates peer-educator-led outreach programmes targeting work places, namely: hotels, manufacturing industries, call centres, male-dominated sectors such as transport, police, agriculture and fisheries.   MFPWA has played a critical role in promoting the integration of comprehensive sexuality education into the national school curriculum and its powerful, informed advocacy has been influential in shaping government’s agenda and policies on SRH and population issues. MFPWA partners with and advises government departments which address health, quality of life, women’s rights, child development, family welfare, social security and youth and sports.  MFPWA works with a large number of non-governmental organizations (NGOs), para-statal and government institutions and international partners like UNFPA, Help Age International and the European Union.

Mouvement Français pour le Planning Familial

The Mouvement Français pour le Planning Familial (MFPF) is a feminist confederacy of over 70 member associations covering most of the French territory. They provide comprehensive sexuality education, counseling and information on contraception, abortion, HIV/STI and sexual and affective issues. Furthermore, they listen to, help and work with survivors of gender-based violence. Half of their beneficiaries are under the age of 20. MFPF and its members also run training courses and produce material for medical and educational communities covering a whole range of SRHR issues. A large number of member associations run health clinics where contraception and abortion services are delivered. MFPF advocates for longer delays and improved access to abortion, and it has been highly active in challenging opposition to fertility regulation. At the European and international scales, the organisation invests in three main activities. First, MFPF advocates for SRHR, women's rights and LGBTQI+ rights. Then, it conducts solidarity campaigns with immigrant women, and with sexual and reproductive health organizations in other European countries (such as Poland) where women's sexual and reproductive rights are violated. Finally, the French organization takes part in international programmes in solidarity with organizations in Africa in order to learn from one another, to share practices and to develop a common political agenda to improve access to SRHR.

Namibia Planned Parenthood Association

Established in 1996, the Namibian Family Planning Association (NAPPA) is dedicated to providing services and assistance to people in need of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) care and support. The need is critical: women run a high risk of maternal death, child mortality levels are high, and HIV prevalence figures are among the poorest in the world. Much of NAPPA’s work to date has been focused on advocacy – lobbying the government and legislators to ensure that SRH and the human rights issues associated are given central consideration in the country’s health, planning and community policies. NAPPA operates 3 service points, including 2 clinics. The Member Association is relatively small, with a permanent staff of just 7 people, but it is building capacity to increase its coverage. Youth groups are a particular target, and NAPPA is developing strong peer education projects to ensure that a new generation of Namibians is equipped to make informed decisions about individual SRH in the future. NAPPA works in partnership with the Ministry of Health and with non-governmental organizations including Physically Active Youth and Lironga Epara (for people living with AIDS). Donors include UNAIDs, and the Association has close ties with other Namibian groups including Adolescent Friendly Health Services, the National Working Group on Female Condoms, the National Network of Aids Services, the Namibia Non-Governmental Forum, and the Namibia National AIDS Network.

Much of NAPPA’s work to date has been focused on advocacy – lobbying the government and legislators to ensure that SRH and the human rights issues associated are given central consideration in the country’s health, planning and community policies. NAPPA operates 3 service points, including 2 clinics. The Member Association is relatively small, with a permanent staff of just 7 people, but it is building capacity to increase its coverage. Youth groups are a particular target, and NAPPA is developing strong peer education projects to ensure that a new generation of Namibians is equipped to make informed decisions about individual SRH in the future. NAPPA works in partnership with the Ministry of Health and with non-governmental organizations including Physically Active Youth and Lironga Epara (for people living with AIDS). Donors include UNAIDs, and the Association has close ties with other Namibian groups including Adolescent Friendly Health Services, the National Working Group on Female Condoms, the National Network of Aids Services, the Namibia Non-Governmental Forum, and the Namibia National AIDS Network.
