Abstract

PIP:

The Planned Parenthood Federation of Canada (PPFC) has supported the International Planned Parenthood Federation/Western Hemisphere Region (IPPF/WHR) since 1989. PPFC receives funds from the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and from Canadian inhabitants. These funds help IPPF/WHR provide family planning services and education in Latin America and the Caribbean. CIDA's matching 3-to-1 grant has allowed PPFC to implement projects in Colombia, Mexico, Peru, and the Caribbean. The monies from Canadian citizens fund an adolescent clinic in Bogota, Colombia, and a women's education project for PROFAMILIA staff in Colombia which centers on gender issues. Other PPFC supported projects include an adolescent center in Cartagena, Colombia; a community doctors program in Jalisco, Mexico; and a maternal and child health project in Canto Grande, Peru. PPFC consultants visited projects and in early 1993 went to Colombia. Since conditions were too dangerous for a Canadian to visit the maternal and child health project in Peru, a local consultant had to evaluate the project. PPFC's Board of Directors support PPFC staff's commitment to helping IPPF/WHR. IPPF/WHR hopes to continue its collaborative relationship with PPFC as it addresses the unmet family needs of women, men, and adolescents in the Western Hemisphere.
