Advocacy

IPPF European Network is breaking down barriers to sexual and reproductive freedom, helping to ensure that all people can lead safe and dignified reproductive lives.

Across Europe and Central Asia, women are being denied control over their sexual and reproductive lives as a result of hostile chauvinist policies, gender inequality and social oppression.

Many governments are not doing enough to ensure that women and girls have true access to sexual and reproductive care, and it is the poorest and most marginalised who bear the brunt of this neglect. 

IPPF EN is working with the European Union and with governments to ensure that barriers to sexual and reproductive care are lifted. We are fighting to redefine reproductive care as a policy priority in Europe and beyond.

Through our advocacy we call on the international community to ensure that all people can lead free and safe private and family lives, in a society free from sexism and discrimination.
