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.
The Serbian Association for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRH Serbia/SRHS) was founded in 2002. It aims to improve the sexual and reproductive health (SRH) status of young people through advocacy and the practical delivery of services.
The organization also focuses on vulnerable and hard-to-reach groups (with particular reference to Roma) via a 'Health Mediators' project which is being rolled out in Belgrade, Nis and Bujanovac.
The sexual and reproductive health (SRH) indicators for Liberia make for uncomfortable reading. The linkages between the figures are all-too obvious: very high poverty levels, low contraceptive use, high fertility rates, and the highest child mortality rate in the world.
Association Burkinabé pour le Bien-Etre Familial (FPABF) was set up in 1985. Staff and over 1,000 volunteers work to provide sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services to poor and marginalized people.
Liberia’s first case of Ebola was declared in March 2014 and within six months the WHO declared the epidemic an international emergency. Most health facilities were closed to all medical needs aside from emergency and Ebola-related cases. The Planned Parenthood Association of Liberia’s (PPAL) priority was to continue delivering sexual and reproductive health services throughout the epidemic.
26 September, United Nations, New York, Civil society and Governments have a key role to play in the global effort to secure prime position for sexual and reproductive health and rights in the post 2015 process according to a high-level panel event organised by the Government of Liberia and the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) yesterday.
“Immediately after my child was born, I found the market family planning booth to receive free services. The services are right in my community and taking family planning has been a good experience. Things have changed in my life because I can now save money and do other things. I tell my friends they must take their family planning!” - Marie Kamara, 35, Liberia
