Ipas is a global organization working in more than fifteen countries to strengthen the quality of abortion services within the legal framework and liberalize the policy environment that regulates these services. This grant will allow Ipas to: (a) increase access to quality reproductive health services by training local health providers, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa; (b) collaborate with ministries of health to interpret abortion policy in the broadest way possible; and (c) use research and evidence to advocate for policies to increase access to safe abortion services.

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.
