Choices and opportunities fund
For the four-year period between 1 January 2011 and 31 December 2014, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has awarded grants from the Choices and Opportunities Fund. The fund was open to a number of international NGOs that have a strategic added value in the field of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and HIV/AIDS.
A total of €40 million available from the Choices and Opportunities Fund has been allocated to the following recipients:
- International Planned Parenthood Federation (young people and sexuality);
- Population Services International (family planning);
- Ipas (safe abortion);
- International HIV/AIDS Alliance (harm reduction for drug users).
A budget reservation has been incorporated into the grant decision for all awards.
