Background and overview of the engagement

The Women’s Integrated Sexual Health (WISH2ACTION – W2A) program is IPPF’s flagship health program designed to transform the lives of millions of women and girls. Funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), the £132 million WISH2ACTION program is providing integrated and holistic healthcare to 2.2m additional users of contraception in 10 countries across South/East Africa. The program is currently being delivered by a consortium of five internationally recognized organizations and 10 IPPF Member Associations (MAs). Program coordination is being managed by a Secretariat Hub, hosted by IPPF’s Africa Regional Office (ARO) in Nairobi, Kenya.

Through a consortium of IPPF Member Associations (MAs) and five internationally recognized organizations and led by IPPF, WISH prioritizes the most underserved women and girls, particularly youth under 20, the very poor, and other marginalized populations (including people with disability, people displaced or affected by humanitarian crisis, and people living in hard-to-reach areas).

The project currently needs creative and design work for all the documents and content being disseminated by the communications office.
