||IPPF seeks to increase accessibility, quality and use of voluntary reproductive health services in some of the poorest communities throughout the world.
We partner with local Member Associations to build their abilities to provide family planning services, maternal and newborn care, and prevention of sexually transmitted infections, including HIV and AIDS.
We promote human rights, gender equality and empowerment of women and young people. In the year 2003 alone, more than millions of women and children in 180 countries benefited from reproductive health projects, contributing to overall community well being and improved quality of life.
The East & South East Asia and Oceania Region (ESEAOR), with a population of approximately 2 billion, is the largest of IPPF's six regions. It encompasses member associations and presence in 25 countries and is extremely diverse in population
size and distribution, geography, socio-economic development, political and legal climate, religious and linguistic profiles and reproductive and sexual health status.
