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.
