It is estimated that 225 million women in developing countries have an unmet need for family planning. Investing in family planning will lower unintended pregnancies and avert unsafe abortions, thereby reducing maternal mortality and morbidity. Around the world, women and girls suffer human rights abuses, such as sexual- and gender-based violence, early and forced marriage, and female genital mutilation, and are disproportionately affected by HIV. In many countries, young people are unaware of, and unable to claim, their sexual rights. In response, IPPF provides a range of quality, integrated SRH services and information to empower individuals, particularly poor and vulnerable populations, to exercise their rights. IPPF is committed to eradicating poverty and inequality, promoting sustainable development, and advancing gender equality. Our impact is for women, men and young people to be free to make informed choices about their sexuality, health and well-being, in a world without discrimination. IPPF’s locally owned, globally connected Strategic Framework (2016-2022) guides national MAs and civil society partners in formulating their own tailored strategies, and unites the Federation. Core support from the Government of Finland for the period of 2017-2018 will accelerate IPPF’s progress in implementing its ambitious Strategic Framework. The four outcomes in the Strategic Framework that IPPF will work towards are: 1. By 2022, 100 governments will respect, protect and fulfil sexual and reproductive rights and gender equality 2. By 2022, one billion people will act freely on their sexual and reproductive health and rights 3. By 2022, IPPF and our partners will deliver two billion quality, integrated sexual and reproductive health services 4. By 2022, IPPF will be a high performing, accountable and united Federation. IPPF’s key expected results (2017-2018) are:  We will provide over 299.2 million sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services, 45% of these will be for young people.  We will contribute to at least 221 advocacy wins that defend and advance SRHR (more than 2 wins per week).  We will reach 200.4 million people with positive SRHR messages.  We will ensure 61.7 million young people complete a quality-assured comprehensive sexuality education programmes.
