Poor and vulnerable

In 2016, we delivered services to an estimated 47.2 million poor and vulnerable users. This represented nearly 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 46,000 service delivery points, including 27,860 IPPF-owned static clinics, mobile and outreach facilities, and community-based distributors. Two-thirds of IPPF's static clinics 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.
