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.

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.
