Ipas

For Strategic Planning In West Africa

Overview
Ipas has a global mission to train health care providers to provide abortion services safely and advocate for improvements in the policy environment for abortion provision. This support would provide the resources necessary for Ipas to develop a new strategy for Francophone West Africa, where abortion provision is highly restricted and the quality of services available to women who might qualify as very poor. Ipas’s strategy for Francophone West Africa will consider which countries might have governments and civil society supportive to addressing the issue of unsafe abortion; identify potential clinical, research, and advocacy partners; and assess potential sources of funding for their work in the region.

Ipas works to advance sexual and reproductive health and rights by enhancing women’s and girls’ access to and use of safe abortion and contraception. This grant to Ipas is aligned with the International Reproductive Health strategy to ensure that no woman dies from an unsafe abortion. Ipas represents the primary global vanguard organization in the safe abortion sector, using a multifaceted approach that includes legal reform, health system strengthening, and community education and engagement. Ipas produces global goods that benefit the sector broadly — including programmatic tools, global monitoring of opposition actors, and a robust research agenda.
