Summary

Women and girls in Central America and Mexico experience high rates of violence and significant barriers to sexual and reproductive health services.

Your support helps us share necessary information and support with women who need abortion, train providers, equip facilities, and educate young people about their reproductive rights and health.

Challenge

The Central America and Mexico region has some of the strictest abortion laws in the world, and many people lack access to contraception. Restricting access to essential sexual and reproductive health care risks the health and lives of women and girls. Poor, indigenous, migrant, and afro-descendant women, who may also be living in rural communities, are more likely to be harmed by the criminalization of reproductive care, including abortion.

Solution

In Central America and Mexico, Ipas works with diverse partners to address every factor that is critical to ensure women can access sexual and reproductive health care. We train providers and equip facilities to provide high-quality care, strengthen community leaders' and activists' capacity to support women and girls to exercise their rights, advocate for policy change, and put information on how to access care in the hands of women and girls themselves.

Long-Term Impact

Increased access to abortion and contraception is fundamental to improving bodily autonomy and gender equality. And gender equality is essential to overall wellbeing, health, and development in Central America and Mexico. By strengthening health systems, Ipas helps ensure long-lasting improvements in health-care quality and access. Building advocates' expertise at the grassroots level ensures they can continue their work to change community social norms and build support for abortion rights.
