Poor and vulnerable

In 2017, we delivered services to an estimated 59.1 million poor and vulnerable users. This represented eight in ten of all our service users.

Member Associations deliver information, education and services to people living in hard-to-reach areas. IPPF has over 40,000 service delivery points, including 24,500 IPPF-owned static clinics, mobile and outreach facilities, and community-based distributors. 60% of IPPF-owned service delivery points are located in rural or peri-urban areas.

Under-served groups receive services from Member Associations because of a reluctance or lack of expertise and capacity from public or private partners to work with them.

These groups include young people, sex workers, men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, sexually diverse populations and prisoners.
