Poor & vulnerable

marginalized stats IPPF

In 2015, IPPF's East and South East Asian and Oceania Member Associations served 7.6 million poor and vulnerable clients. This was 74% of all clients served within the region.

Under-served groups receive services from Member Associations because of a reluctance from public or private partners to work with them.

These groups include young people, sex workers, men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, sexually diverse populations and prisoners.

In addition, 7 East and South East Asian and Oceania Member Associations used IPPF’s Vulnerability Assessment methodology to collect data on poverty and vulnerability status of service users.
