Global Policy Project – Kenya Advocacy Case Study

IPPFAR is seeking to recruit a short-term consultant(s) / consulting firm to undertake an advocacy documentation exercise in Kenya.


The International Planned Parenthood Federation Africa Regional Office (IPPFARO) is one of the leading providers of quality sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services in Africa, and a prominent sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) advocacy voice in the region. We remain committed to gender equality and to ensuring that women, girls, and young people realise their rights and have control over their own bodies, their lives, and their futures. Headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya, IPPFARO delivers its critical missions with the support and leadership of 32 Member Associations (MAs), 7 Collaborative Partners, youth advocates, staff, and a network of dedicated volunteers who provide high quality, youth focused and gender sensitive services to those who are most vulnerable and marginalised. In 2020 alone, the MAs provided more than 105 million sexual and reproductive health and rights services. Further details can be found here: About IPPFARO English/French

Overview of the engagement

IPPF is committed to advocating for the SRHR of all. Yet a multitude of barriers still exist resulting in shocking data on health outcomes: 220 million women who want to avoid pregnancy do not have access to modern contraception; 25 million have an unsafe abortion every year; and one in three experience sexual violence at some point in their lives.

Governments worldwide have committed to international and regional commitments towards delivering universal access to sexual and reproductive health and rights. However, these aspirations are far from being met and sustained multilevel and multipronged advocacy is required if they are to be translated into urgent action.

IPPFAR in collaboration with the Guttmacher Institute, is implementing the Global Policy Project which aims to advance SRHR, and the popularisation and adoption of the Guttmacher-Lancet Commission's (GLC) recommendations on SRHR in regional and national policy instruments.
