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 this weekend (30th November – 1st December).

Over two days, Member Associations discussed and debated the recommendations presented by two Independent Commissions. Member Associations reached unanimous consensus on the recommendations to reform IPPF’s governance structure and resource allocation system. On Sunday these were endorsed by IPPF’s Governing Council.

This summary outlines the recommendations which were approved at the General Assembly and endorsed by the Governing Council. 

Rana Abu Ghazaleh, IPPF President said “This is a truly historic moment for IPPF. 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 women and girls we are here for.”

Alvaro Bermejo, Director-General said “The collective energy and passion from our Member Associations to drive the reforms forward has been tremendous. Over the last few days we have heard many passionate voices from our Federation. Together, our MAs have forged a path forward, finding compromise and building consensus. There is no doubt. IPPF is changing. By choice. For choice.”
