Within ICA Foundation’s network partnership with the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), PROFAMILIA, a Dominican Republic non-profit institution, received 2,200 LNG IUS since 2010. PROFAMILIA contributes to the sexual and reproductive health needs and promotion of health rights of women, through advocacy, services, education and quality products.
LNG IUS has been integrated into PROFAMILIA’s contraceptive method mix in six outpatient clinics. These clinics mainly serve communities of low socio-economic status—over 1500 people per day.
