Abstract

This article reports the proceedings of the meeting conducted by the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) Governing Council (GC) in Morocco. A total of 29 out of the 30 volunteer GC members attended the meeting. The activities of the first day included a visit to the Centers for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Communication Development in Rabat and Fez. It is noted that Morocco is sharing a model approach of its multi-purpose centers, which are located in densely populated areas. These centers provide reproductive health and family planning services, counseling, literacy classes, income-generating activities and legal advice on domestic violence. In the following days, discussions on administrative matters were held. In addition, the IPPF youth manifesto was presented in its final, published format, which stresses the need for IPPF youth to strengthen program activities and its financial situation. Moreover, a workshop was held to strengthen the working relationship and further communication between IPPF staff and volunteers. Issues covered included how to reach common goals and further mobilize resources.
