Mexico City Policy will have a devastating impact for International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) with its extension far beyond family planning. Restrictions into support for HIV, maternal health and infectious diseases programmes will mean that millions will be denied lifesaving healthcare they need. The policy will hit hardest, the women living at the margins of society – the poorest, the most remote and those under 25.
Every year the IPPF awards grants to its young volunteers from around the world to support youth-led projects on sexual and reproductive health and rights.
For 2015, the projects were focused on tackling abortion stigma.
The 2014 David Kato Vision and Voice Award winner is Cambodian transgender activist, Sou Sotheavy. She will be presented the award at the prestigious Teddy Awards in Berlin.
Sou Sotheavy is 75 years old. She has spent the last 2 decades working to establish a national network of organizations to support lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people across the country.
