The Safe Abortion Action Fund (SAAF) is the only global fund focused exclusively on the right to safe and accessible abortion. Through our funding and support, we work to de‑stigmatize abortion and to enable organisations in low- and middle-income countries to deliver abortion-related initiatives based on their context and expertise. SAAF also creates opportunities for organisations and networks working on abortion to connect with like-minded partners, with the goal of supporting a thriving intersectional movement to advance reproductive rights for all, especially communities which experience marginalization.
SAAF is hosted by the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF). The postholder will be housed within the structure of IPPF’s Africa Regional Office (ARO), but will be part of the Global SAAF Secretariat, with staff located in Africa, Latin America, and Europe. IPPF ARO currently has offices based in Nairobi and Abidjan. The postholder will be able to work in the IPPF offices in those locations and any other new locations opened by IPPF ARO.
No relocation package will be offered for this role.
