IMAP Statement Abortion Self-Care

IPPF understands abortion self-care as the right of women and girls to lead, in part or entirely, their abortion process, with or without support from health providers. Guided by the existing evidence and practices, this statement provides practical recommendations for IPPF Member Associations and other sexual and reproductive health stakeholders on how to manage abortion care within a people-centred model which empowers individuals and is supported by community collectives and social networks, however still backed-up by the healthcare system whenever needed or required. This statement also serves as an advocacy tool to create an enabling environment for abortion self-care.   Download in English, French, and Spanish below.

Delivering no matter what: IPPF’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic

All around the world, the COVID-19 pandemic has, and continues to change the way that people live and the way that they experience sexual and reproductive health and rights. The COVID-19 pandemic has been transformative for IPPF as it has necessitated rapid, dramatic shifts in healthcare and programme delivery so that IPPF can continue meeting the needs of their clients and communities. In the first half of 2020, the Federation responded rapidly by convening a strong, multi-faceted global coordination mechanism – a COVID-19 Task Force – that serves to gather and disseminate intelligence about the pandemic; to lead strategic, joined up actions and learning; and to scale up innovations, all with the aim of supporting Member Associations (MAs) to deliver services in exceptionally difficult contexts. Working together, we have found solutions to provide ever more options and routes for rights-based support and care. Many of these will endure long past the pandemic.
