We believe in a world where every person has bodily autonomy and can determine their own future.

Ipas works globally to advance reproductive justice by expanding access to abortion and contraception.

All people have the right to make fundamental decisions about their own bodies and health. That’s why we work with partners across Africa, Asia and the Americas to ensure that reproductive health services, including abortion and contraception, are available and accessible to all.

Abortion is health care.

Ipas statement on the U.S. Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade

A comprehensive approach

Guaranteeing the right to abortion isn’t enough. We know that economic, cultural, religious, and systemic barriers prevent many people from accessing abortion care even where it’s legal and available.

Our solution: We work across institutions and communities to build sustainable abortion ecosystems. In such an ecosystem, people have the information they need to make decisions about reproductive health, there’s community and health-system support for human rights and abortion access, and laws and policies support full bodily autonomy.

On the 50th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, and Ipas

There’s no shame in abortion. There’s no shame in talking about abortion. There’s no shame in fighting for bodily autonomy and reproductive freedom. We aren’t alone in our convictions—our research shows that nine out of 10 people living in the United States disagree with abortion bans.

Study by Ipas and partners identifies ways to help women and girls in humanitarian settings gain control over their reproductive health
