From providing life-saving sexual and reproductive health services to refugee women to investing in communities to change young people’s lives, our Member Associations across Europe and Central Asia worked passionately to implement ambitious commitments in the field of sexual and reproductive health and rights.
Ensuring that governments deliver on sexual and reproductive health and rights and gender equality is central to our members’ work. In 2015, our members helped to bring about key policy changes to ensure greater equality and tackle discrimination. For example, in France, free contraception can now be provided anonymously to under-18s by a pharmacist. The rights of young people are at the heart of IPPF EN and we will continue to challenge gender stereotypes and patriarchal social norms to help ensure that young people are able to reach their full potential.
