Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support
The International Planned Parenthood Federation Worldwide, Inc. (IPPF WWI) is a global federation of family planning associations working in more than 170 countries. It is one of the largest nongovernmental organizations in the world that promotes reproductive rights, and is one of two major international organizations most affected by the reinstatement of the Mexico City policy. IPPF WWI’s work improving service access and policies for reproductive health globally is highly aligned with the overall international reproductive health strategy.This grant will support the organizational priorities of the federation during the grant period, including a strategic framework that addresses the sexual and reproductive health needs of adolescents (the largest ever generation), the growing social and economic inequalities around the world, and the burgeoning opposition movement that threatens gains in sexual and human rights. The federation is undergoing a significant governance reform process over the next year that will allow it to rectify some deep structural issues within the organization.
for advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights
The grant will support the International Planned Parenthood Federation Worldwide, Inc. (IPPF WWI) in providing capacity strengthening and funding to African member associations and civil society organizations (CSOs) that advocate for government accountability on sexual and reproductive health and rights. In partnership with Planned Parenthood Association Ghana, IPPF will work with member associations and CSOs to acquire the advocacy and organizational development skills needed to effectively engage in policy development and implementation processes at the national, regional, and global levels.
