Gender-based violence puts women and girls at higher risk for unwanted pregnancy, and victims require specially tailored care that includes access to emergency contraception and safe abortion.

Ipas works to improve care for women and girls who experience gender-based violence and to advocate for laws and policies that prevent such violence so that victims can fully exercise their sexual and reproductive rights. We train health, law enforcement and judicial professionals on local laws and policies and on how to properly handle gender-based violence cases to ensure victims are informed of their options and offered the best possible care.
