Our Strategy

Our 2018-2023 Strategic Plan affirms our commitment to advancing sexual and reproductive autonomy, choices, and health around the world and our core strategy of conducting Bold, Rigorous Research that meets the highest ethical standards. Recognizing that research is necessary, but insufficient, for large-scale change, we have elevated Principled Partnerships, so critical to our work to date, as an equally important core strategy. By principled partnerships, we mean partnerships that are grounded in respect, mutual accountability, transparent and equitable sharing of power, and the use of research results to positively impact people’s lives. These two core strategies are reflected in our updated mission statement:

Ibis drives change through bold, rigorous research and principled partnerships that advance sexual and reproductive autonomy, choices, and health worldwide.

This new plan also centers justice and equity as key principles we seek to embed in our work and in our organizational policies, practices, and culture.

We strive to make progress on the following mutually supporting strategic focus areas:

  • Ensure all people have the right and ability to access safe, affordable, quality abortion care
  • Transform access to abortion and contraception through bold service-delivery and technology innovations
  • Expand access to comprehensive sexual and reproductive health information and services

We invite you to read our strategic plan and join us in realizing our vision of success—an inclusive and just world where everyone has the power to exercise their human right to live a pleasurable, safe, and healthy sexual and reproductive life.
