IPPF envisages a world in which all women, men and young people have access to the information and services they need; a world in which sexuality is recognized both as a natural and precious aspect of life and as a fundamental human right; a world in which choices are fully respected and where stigma and discrimination have no place.
IPPF aims to improve the quality of life of individuals by campaigning for sexual and reproductive health and rights through advocacy and services, especially for poor and vulnerable people.
We defend the right of all young people to enjoy their sexual lives free from ill health, unwanted pregnancy, violence and discrimination.
We support a woman’s right to choose to terminate her pregnancy legally and safely.
We strive to eliminate sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and reduce the spread and impact of HIV/AIDS.
What We Believe:
We see a world where women and men everywhere have control over their own bodies, and therefore their destinies. A world where they are free to choose parenthood or not; free to decide how many children they will have and when; free to pursue healthy sexual lives without fear of unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. A world where gender or sexuality are no longer a source of inequality or stigma.
