My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for International Planned Parenthood Federation/Western Hemisphere Region, New York, NY, USA
IPPF is a leading advocate of sexual and reproductive health and rights worldwide.
I started collaborating with IPPF in 1984; and, through technical assistance visits to over 40 countries, I have realized how important IPPF’s work is to save lives and allow women, young people, and men to make decisions over their own bodies and fulfill their basic human rights.
I have participated in the improvement of information systems and data quality in IPPF clinics ranging from the poorest areas in Haiti to clinics located in the Himalayas in Nepal. In those places I have witnessed how IPPF provides essential health services to people who need them most.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Expand their coverage and try to reduce staff turnover, by making their Secretariat and Member Associations more competitive to retain their key human resources
