The International Planned Parenthood Federation welcomes the news of the removal of abortion care from South Korea’s Criminal Code effective from 1 January 2021. This means those seeking abortion care will no longer face legal barriers in accessing care.
IPPF responds to the new UK aid pledge made at the United Nations General Assembly, to expand access for over 20 million women and girls.
IPPF welcomes the efforts of WHO in providing evidence-based guidance and recommendations to organizations providing sexual and reproductive health services.
The broadcaster says it will stop using the term “heartbeat bill” to describe attempts in the US to introduce six-week abortion bans, after conceding the phrase is biased. IPPF hopes this will prompt BBC News, who have not ruled out using the phrase, to reconsider its position.
IPPF strongly welcomes the renewal of the Mandate of the Independent Expert on protection against violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity at the 41st session of the Human Rights Council that ends today in Geneva.
The BBC has said it won’t stop labelling attempts to ban abortion after six weeks as “heartbeat bills” – despite conceding the phrase is biased and medically inaccurate. The right thing to do is to stop using it. We call on the BBC to think again.
IPPF has welcomed the publication of the results of the Evidence for Contraceptive Options and HIV Outcomes (ECHO) trial – but warned they show how much more must be done urgently to combat HIV acquisition and offer real contraceptive choice.
IPPF welcome the historic decision made by the South Korean Constitutional Court on 11 April overturning a decades-long ban on access to abortion.
IPPF are honoured and delighted to be commended as a high performer in the Global Health 50/50 2019 analysis of gender equality policies and practices among global organisations active in health.
The lives of millions of women and girls across Africa and South Asia will be transformed by new sexual and reproductive healthcare programmes led by IPPF and Marie Stopes International.
