Maternal health

Every day some 830 women die from causes related to pregnancy or childbirth. Many more have serious injuries or long-lasting consequences. 

IPPF works around the world to improve maternal health through our clinics and outreach services and by training health workers, improving the availability of essential medicines and strengthening health systems.

Climate crisis and sexual and reproductive health and rights

The climate crisis is underpinned by grave injustice. The countries most affected by the climate crisis are the ones least responsible for contributing to it. IPPF's vision is of a world where all people are free to make choices about their sexuality and well‑being, without discrimination. This vision is threatened by the climate crisis.

Sexually-transmitted infections (STIs)

A sexually-transmitted infection (STI) is usually a bacterial or viral infection predominantly spread through unprotected (i.e. without a condom) sexual contact, including vaginal, anal, and oral sex. Some STIs can also be spread via blood or other bodily fluids. Taking care of your own sexual health and practicing safer sex can protect you from STIs, including HIV. We've created a series of blogs to help you understand some of the more common STIs and their associated symptoms, treatment, and prevention.

The 2020 Annual Performance Report summarizes progress made by IPPF to achieve our Strategic Framework 2016-2022 so that everyone can realize their sexual and reproductive health and rights.

What is self-care?
