For over 60 years, IPPF has been at the vanguard of sexual and reproductive health and rights, ensuring universal access to health care for all in a constantly changing world.
In 2017 we have met need, wherever it is, whoever required it, from providing health care to garment factory workers in Cambodia, changing perceptions about abortion in rural Uganda, to reaching sex workers and drug users in Macedonia with vital services. Our colleagues at Amodefa, Mozambique, remain dedicated and determined as the impact of the Global Gag Rule takes effect impacting HIV, TB, malaria and family planning projects.
Arriving on Ambae Island, Vanuatu, our humanitarian response team hiked for hours up the face of the volcano to reach the worst affected communities following volcanic eruptions to deliver vital medical supplies and services. Mexfam staff demonstrated resilience and commitment continuing to provide free health care during and after Mexico's devastating earthquakes.
We are local, through our members and volunteers, and global, through our network. Our responses are locally designed and owned; our interventions rapid and sustainable.
