Grants to this Grantee
for support of IPPF ARO’s abortion work in Francophone West Africa
This grant to the International Planned Parenthood Federation’s Africa Regional Office will support a project to increase access to equitable and sustainable abortion care in three Francophone West African countries: Niger, Togo, and Cameroon. IPPF Member Associations, which represent leading national sexual and reproductive health service delivery organizations in each country, will receive a sub-grant as well as technical support to develop their own gender- transformative abortion projects, encompassing improvements in clinical services, advances in their social and policy change capacities, and institutional strengthening. Technical support will come from IPPF’s global abortion strategy and tools, from the staff at the global and regional secretariats and also from the Burkina Faso Member Association, which have more advanced technical capacity in abortion work among their peers in the region.

for strategic planning and team building for the new West Africa Regional Office
for advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights
This project aims to ensure that sexual and reproductive health and rights remain a priority in Africa’s development agenda beyond 2015, after the time frame for the Millennium Development Goals and Maputo Plan of Action comes to an end. As a leading sexual and reproductive rights organization, with significant success in setting agendas and initiating policy dialogues among decision makers in national governments and the African Union Commission leadership, the International Planned Parenthood Africa Regional office will facilitate consensus building among key stakeholders. The project will enhance collaborative North-South advocacy to make sexual and reproductive health and rights a high priority at the international level. Key outcomes will be a consensus by national governments, African Union Commission leadership, community service organizations, and development partners on Africa’s sexual and reproductive health priorities and how they should be addressed.
