Where We Work

We have a rich body of work on young women’s sexual and reproductive health that has included participatory research with young women and community members in urban and rural settings, trainings for health care providers, and the development of SRH curricula. We currently convene a national forum addressing teen pregnancy. We also conduct clinical research focused on improving abortion access and quality of care.
Ibis’s US-focused work includes documentation of the impact of abortion restrictions and other reproductive health policies on women and health care providers and research on innovative ways to improve women’s access to services and make services more women centered.
Our projects in the LAC region focus on generating new and leveraging existing evidence to change abortion policies at the national, local, and hospital/clinic levels; improving professional practices; eliminating stigma; and ensuring that women have access to quality services even in settings where abortion is highly legally restricted.
Ibis’s work in the sub-Saharan region encompasses a wide range of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) issues, including abortion, contraception, and HIV/AIDS.
In addition to the work in our regions of focus, Ibis has also led projects in regions such as the Middle East and North Africa and Thailand-Burma border regions.
