IPPF ESEAOR is managed by mainly by its Regional Office (RO) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. A sub-regional office in Fiji assists in managing affairs in the Pacific. Both the staff at ESEAOR and the sub-regional office for the Pacific (SROP) compose the Regional Secretariat to assist the Member Associations (MAs). The secretariat is led by the Regional Director (RD) and assisting the RD are different staff responsible in the areas of governance, strategic planning, programme development and operations, monitoring and evaluation (M&E), resource mobilisation and financial information systems. IPPF ESEAOR 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 (SRHR) within and across the region.
IPPF has the largest global reach of any sexual and reproductive health (SRH) organisation due its dedicated volunteers, from grassroots to the highest governance levels. Hundreds of thousands of volunteers work with the organisation at the grassroots level doing counselling, service delivery and advocacy in SRH issues. They come from all kinds of backgrounds. Most have been directly affected by sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) issues. Many are part of the most marginalised communities we seek to reach. All are passionately committed to IPPF’s vision and to advancing IPPF’s mission.
