IPPF made a commitment to ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health services by 2015. Our Integrated Package of Essential Services (IPES) supports this commitment by promoting service provision for the most pressing sexual and reproductive health needs of the population.
By offering our clients an integrated package of these 8 essential services we place them at the very centre of everything we do. It also ensures that we deliver quality to every individual.
This approach focuses on both expanding supply and increasing demand for services.
Halimah from Indonesia was 17 when she made this film.
This is the story of what happened when she first had unprotected sex: how she was ostracised by her family and thrown out of school, and how she felt that her future had been taken away.
Things looked bleak for Halimah but that’s not quite the end of the story...
Her cousin introduced her to our Member Association, the Indonesian Planned Parenthood Association.
They not not only provided Halimah with counselling, but she was also offered antenatal care during her pregnancy. Once her baby was born she received contraception counselling so she could choose the contraceptive method that was right for her.
In addition, the doctor recommended that Halimah join their youth outreach service where she could meet other young people like herself and help to advocate for sexual and reproductive health and rights.
