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.
Since being introduced in 2009, medical abortion (the abortion pill), is revolutionising how women access abortion care. Almost half of the abortions performed in Nepal are through the medical procedure.
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.
IPPF’s Strategic Framework (SF) 2016-2022 commits the organisation to lead a locally-owned globally connected movement that provides and enables services, and champions sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) for all.
