“It’s not easy work, but it’s very necessary. I have sacrificed a lot, but knowing I’m helping people makes it all worth it.”
Dr. Marisol Cuella Lanuza, doctor in Bolivia
“I thank God for everything [IPPF/WHR Member Association ADS] did for me. Without their help, I would have died.”

“When you empower individuals and families with the information and services they need to decide on all aspects related to reproduction and sexuality, you create more sustainable and just communities.”
Carmen Barroso, IPPF/WHR Regional Director
“Spending my 20s in a political climate that threatens the historic legacy of Roe v. Wade has only made it more clear how important IPPF’s work is in the US and abroad.”
Katy Brodsky, IPPF/WHR donor
“I feel more comfortable coming [to IPPF/WHR Member Association BFLA] for sexual and reproductive health services than going to the regular doctor to check for the flu.”
Kendra Butler, young advocate and client in Belize
“IPPF/WHR is more than service providers and program advisors: We are advocates, counselors, friends, and allies. We have dedicated our lives to ending some of the toughest challenges facing communities today, like HIV/AIDS, sexual violence, and homophobia. We do it because we believe in social justice. We do it because it’s right.”
Esther Vicente, President of IPPF/WHR Regional Council
“If [IPPF/WHR Member Association PROFAMILIA] did not exist, there would be more women with cancer, more pregnant teenagers, and more people with HIV.”
Leona Adolfo, nurse in the Dominican Republic
“My grandmother, Margaret Sanger, was arrested in 1916 when she opened America’s first birth control clinic in Brooklyn. While we’ve come a long way, your generosity and commitment is crucial to furthering our cause.”

IPPF/WHR’s experienced staff and 30,000 volunteers are more than advocates and service providers: They are experts in medicine, human rights, health and social programs, and technology who leverage their knowledge and skills to strengthen the network. By sharing best practices, providing technical assistance, and partnering with governments and the private sector, they work to scale up proven health care models and amplify advocacy campaigns.
