IPPF South Asia Regional and Youth Forum 2021


Delivering No Matter What!


23-25 November, 2021

Message from Sonal Mehta, South Asia Regional Director, International Planned Parenthood Federation

South Asia region is where the International Planned Parenthood Federation was born. In December 2019, it was here that as a Federation we said ‘IPPF is Changing. By Choice. For Choice.’ We committed to change to respond better, for a stronger federation and sustainable Member Associations. The COVID-19 pandemic was a challenge for our economies, societies, and life.

I would like to thank each one of our Member Associations and health advocates for their work to weather this crisis and provide essential lifesaving sexual and reproductive health services to those in need. Your commitment made the difference. We are hosting the regional and youth forum this year’s to celebrate this bold commitment of yours. The theme for this year forum is “Delivering No Matter What” and it showcases our purpose and values to serve the communities despite the challenges. We are restricted by the pandemic but virtually we will celebrate and build regional solidarity through the forum. I invite you to hear young changemakers speak about the future of reproductive freedom and gather to engage with peers from different countries.

This is your forum – and you have led it, made it open, inclusive and democratic—and truly held our promise of being ‘By choice. For choice’!
