Women & Girls

IPPF believes in gender transformative programming which enables women and girls and people with diverse gender identities to lead lives free from violence; have access to quality services, information, education and social conditions that allow them to maintain good sexual and reproductive health and realize their sexual and reproductive rights. Gender and sexual diversity as a right is core to our work and underpins programming across the region.
