Working with local partners, Ipas works to increase access to quality reproductive health services, particularly comprehensive abortion care, around the world. Ipas trains local health providers, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, to increase their skills in delivering high-quality abortion care; collaborates with ministries of health to interpret abortion policy in the broadest way possible; and uses research and evidence to advocate for liberalizing policies to increase access to safe abortion services.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of Ipas' regional strategy in Francophone West Africa
This program grant will support Ipas’ Francophone Africa regional program to improve access to quality abortion services. Since the office was established in 2015, Ipas has become a leading and established presence in the region, working closely with governments, advocates, and clinicians to advance abortion access and reproductive rights. Their approach is holistic, adapting their programming to the abortion ecosystem in each country. This grant is aligned with the Global Reproductive Equity strategy outcomes to strengthen the sexual and reproductive health ecosystem and to support legalization and access to safe abortion in Francophone West Africa.
