They prioritise working with women and girls, the poor and vulnerable, youth and in humanitarian emergencies. In 2015 IPPF reached 2.2 million people with Sexual and Reproductive Health services in crises. By 2022 they aim to reach 11 million people per year, by using their global network, telling the story of how crises impact on sexual and reproductive health, and building on partnerships with leading global humanitarian organisations.

The IPPF Sub-Regional office of the Pacific (SROP) is part of the East, South-East Asia and Oceania Regional office. This region is the largest and the most diverse, covering China to Tuvalu. The Pacific Office is responsible for providing support and guidance for Pacific IPPF Member Associations (MA), which are usually the Family Planning Associations in each country (Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu). SROP facilitates and assists Member Associations with resources and technical expertise, ensuring they are able to deliver quality comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services. It is responsible for supporting Members in strategic planning, programme development and operations, monitoring and evaluation, resource mobilisation, financial accountability, volunteer development, capacity building, knowledge management, quality of care and management information systems. The IPPF Pacific Office works to raise awareness of Member’s activities and advocate for sexual and reproductive health issues affecting the Pacific Region.
The SROP office also facilitates partnerships between its MAs and Government agencies, non-Governmental organisations, civil society, and UN agencies in the field of sexual and reproductive health and rights within and across the region.
