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 Barbados Family Planning Association (BFPA) was founded in 1954 and provides a comprehensive family planning programme. It works closely with the Barbados Ministry of Health to provide counselling, information and contraception (including voluntary sterilization), and abortion and post-abortion care from its main clinic, located at BFPA’s headquarters. The Member Association has its own cytology laboratory, which relieves pressure on the government facilities.
