Expanding contraceptive choices offers the potential to put power into women’s hands said the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) in reaction to the Sayana Press announcement by Pfizer BD, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and CIFF today.
IPPF is already playing a major role in the introduction of Sayana Press to increase access to the world’s most poorest and underserved women and girls.
IPPF advises and collaborates in Advanced Family Planning (AFP) national and global advocacy efforts. The partnership works to increase financial investments and political commitment needed to ensure access to family planning through effective advocacy. AFP is comprised by more than 20 partner organisations working in Burkina Faso, Democratic Republic of the Congo, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal, Tanzania and Uganda with additional opportunity fund grants.
In January 2011, Rutgers Nisso Groep and the World Population Foundation merged to form Rutgers. Rutgers is dedicated to promoting sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) in the Netherlands and worldwide. The organization is a non-grant-receiving full Member Association of IPPF.
The 3 fundamental principles underpinning Rutgers's work are the promotion of equal sexual treatment, the protection and improvement of SRHR, and the emancipation of specific vulnerable groups, or groups with particular sexual and reproductive health (SRH) needs.

Hundreds of young people provide peer group counselling, and also run a telephone helpline and workshops on sex education and sexuality awareness on a voluntary basis.
