Who We Are

Ipas Development Foundation (IDF) is a not-for-profit company registered under section 25 of The Companies Act 1956, and is the local partner organization in India for Ipas.

With a bold vision and sharply focused mission, we seek to increase our efforts so that more women and girls can access the safe abortion and contraception that they want or need.

IDF’s Mission and Vision

IDF is dedicated to preventing and managing unwanted pregnancies. At IDF we believe that no woman should have to risk her life or her health because she lacks reproductive health care, and every woman must have the opportunity to manage her fertility.

Our vision is to help ensure that every woman and girl has the right and ability to determine her own sexuality and reproductive health. Women are the core of families and communities, and their well-being is central to national health and stability.

At IDF, we:-

  • are focused on the woman or girl who wants contraception or an abortion, and we move every lever within our power to support her
  • work to dismantle barriers and to foster the full realization of sexual and reproductive health and rights, which are essential to the achievement of physical, mental, spiritual, political and economic well-being
  • are opposed to coercion in any form
