There are more young people living now than at any other time in history - those aged 10-24 make up just less than one quarter of the world’s population. However, despite being a significant part of the world’s population, young people do not always have the opportunity to participate in society at the same level as older people.
Medical abortion has the potential to increase access to safe abortion care and to increase women’s autonomy and decision‑making with regards to their reproductive choices and rights. It is time to implement evidence‑based abortion services that promote, protect and fulfil the sexual and reproductive rights of all individuals everywhere.
IPPF's Her in Charge report presses governments, health, academic and NGO sectors to take immediate steps to stop women from dying and suffering disabilities due to an unsafe abortion, by radically scaling up medical abortion efforts.
This Annual Performance Report presents progress in implementing the Strategic Framework. In 2017, IPPF delivered 208.6 million sexual and reproductive health services and contributed to 146 policy and legal changes in support of sexual and reproductive health and rights.
