International Planned Parenthood Federation

Volume 488: debated on Tuesday 3 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what records his Department holds on the uses to which the core funds of the International Planned Parenthood Federation have been put over the latest year for which figures are available; and if he will make a statement. (259016)

The International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) receives core funding from the Department for International Development (DFID) of £8.6 million per annum. This is in recognition of their improved performance and global leadership in support of global sexual and reproductive health and rights. Core funding is provided to support IPPF’s global plan of work and DFID does not require IPPF to separately track and account for DFID funding.

DFID provides funding to IPPF for its work to promote reproductive health. IPPF produces an annual report and audited accounts which are used by DFID for monitoring purposes. DFID also attends IPPF’s annual donor consultation meeting to consider issues such as performance and effectiveness. The IPPF Annual Report is available on-line at:
