International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF)
Despite progress made, major gaps still exist to fully realize sexual and reproductive health and rights for all. IPPF, through its 147 member associations in over 170 countries, is among the leading non-governmental organisations globally active in advocacy and service delivery to advance sexual and reproductive health and rights. As such, IPPF contributes to the implementation of the International Conference on Population and Development and the Agenda 2030.
