Each year, 25 million women and girls around the world have unsafe abortions. We’re working to bring that number to zero.
Ipas is the only international organization solely focused on expanding access to safe abortion and contraceptive care. Across Africa, Asia and Latin America, we work with partners to train abortion providers, connect women with vital information so they can access services, and to advocate for safe, legal abortion.
Our work is urgent
44,000 women and girls die each year from unsafe abortions, and millions more suffer serious, often permanent injuries. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Around the world, our programs strive to improve reproductive health services for women and girls, increase their access to these services, and expand their sexual and reproductive rights.Learn more about our programs
