When IPPF refocused efforts with the three Changes Goals – Unite, Deliver and Perform – an ambitious commitment was made to double the number of sexual and reproductive health services provided between 2010 and 2015. We are proud to announce that 175.3 million services were provided in 2015, only 1 per cent below the goal of 176.4 million. This is a remarkable achievement and a result of Member Associations’ unwavering efforts and commitment. More than eight in ten clients who received services from IPPF were poor and vulnerable, while 44 per cent of our services went to young people.
IPPF never turns anyone away. In humanitarian settings we are there to improve access to life-saving services before, during and after conflict and crisis situations. Having established partnerships in 170 countries means we can respond first when a crisis occurs.
IPPF is committed to expanding access to, and increasing methods of, family planning. This includes universal access to contraception. In our approach we are dedicated to increasing new users, being youth centred and reaching the under-served.
