Founded in 1973, Ipas is a global nongovernmental organization dedicated to ending preventable deaths and disabilities from unsafe abortion. Through local, national and global partnerships, Ipas works to ensure that women can obtain safe, respectful and comprehensive abortion care, including counseling and contraception to prevent future unintended pregnancies.
At Ipas, we believe that:
- Every woman has a right to safe reproductive health choices, including safe abortion care.
- No woman should have to risk her life, her health, her fertility, her well-being or the well-being of her family because she lacks reproductive health care.
- Women everywhere must have the opportunity to determine their futures, care for their families and manage their fertility.
Along with caring, committed health professionals and other colleagues worldwide, Ipas tackles this neglected public health problem head on in some of the world’s poorest countries. While many international donors and governments have focused attention and resources elsewhere, we struggle against the fundamental social injustice that results in the deaths of so many women in the prime of their lives.
