IPPF's Integrated Package of Essential Services (IPES) promotes service provision for the most pressing sexual and reproductive health needs of the population.
We place our clients at the very centre of everything we do and provide them with eight essential services: counselling, contraception, safe abortion care, STIs/RTIs, HIV, gynaecology, prenatal care and gender-based violence.
This approach focuses on both expanding supply and increasing demand for services.
The Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP) is a set of life-saving activities to be implemented at the onset of every humanitarian crisis. It is an internationally accepted minimum standard of care for reproductive health, pioneered and rolled out by IPPF.
The sexual and reproductive health services set out in the MISP can mean the difference between life and death for people affected by disaster.
