Strategic Framework 2016–2022 is a bold and aspirational vision of what the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) plans to achieve, and how we will achieve it, over the next seven years. It is the culmination of an extensive global consultative process involving Member Associations, partners and donors, and was approved by IPPF’s highest decision-making body, the Governing Council, in November 2014.
Our strategy responds to social, political and demographic global trends. These include: the expectations and potential of the largest ever generation of young people; ongoing, significant social and economic inequalities, including discrimination against girls and women; and opposition that threatens gains in human rights. It is also guided by evaluations and analyses of our work – strengths, weaknesses, capacities, resources and networks.
IPPF’s Strategic Framework sets the priorities that will allow the Federation to deliver impact as a sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) movement over the next seven years. It will guide national Member Associations and partners in formulating their own country-specific strategies, based on their resources and tailored to serve the most marginalized groups in local contexts. It also provides focus to the Secretariat in its international influencing and in its support to Member Associations.
Progress in delivering the Strategic Framework will be measured through a dashboard of global results and Member Associations will report on these indicators on an annual basis.
With this essential tool, IPPF is equipped to move forward and deliver on its promises. At the helm of the sexual and reproductive health and rights movement, we will help unite the actions and achievements of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) champions around the world to realize a step change in sexual and reproductive health and rights around the world.
