Action is urgent. We have delivered. We have stood for justice and equality. We commit to more daring and feminist action that secures choices about our bodies, sexual lives, and well-being. Everyone should enjoy a pleasure-filled and healthy sex life and a life free from violence, shame or criminalisation. We know love is love. And we come together in support of women, youth, and people who are marginalised and excluded. Through the care we deliver, the actions we take, and the solidarity we foster.

  • We are a multi-cultural, multi-lingual, intergenerational and diverse work environment.  Applications are particularly encouraged from women, people living with HIV, people living with disability and people with diverse SOGIESC.
  • IPPF is committed to the safety and protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults and our safer recruitment and selection procedures reflect this commitment.  We expect all employees, volunteers, contractors and partners to share this commitment and anyone employed by IPPF agrees to sign up to our Code of Conduct and Safeguarding (Children and Vulnerable Adults) Policy.
