about us


Lesotho Planned Parenthood Association (LPPA) is a non-profit making organization affiliated to International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF).  The Association was registered as a non-governmental organization in 1968. Since then, the Association was a sole provider of family planning services until later in the 1990s when the Government of Lesotho introduced FP services in its health centres. After 1994, following the International Conference on Population and Development, the LPPA programme shifted from linear family planning to a more Integrated Sexual and Reproductive Health Programming.

LPPA is guided by its Constitution, which is approved by the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF).  The structure of LPPA, which is composed of the Annual General Meeting (AGM), the National Executive Committee, and the Secretariat, facilitates governance, enhances transparency and control of the Association.  The Secretariat is headed by the Chief Executive who is assisted by two directors; Programs Director and Finance & Administration Director. 


The existence of good systems and protocols for management and staff, as well as for Program implementation, makes LPPA to run efficient and effective operations.  LPPA has skilled personnel for Program development, implementation and evaluation. 
In response to emerging Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) issues, LPPA’s focus is based on five strategic focus areas:

In addition to the clinic based services, LPPA runs an outreach services program to reach communities in the rural parts of the country as well as in textile factories.

The Strategic Plan (2024-2028) represents a roadmap that the Association   follows  in addressing the Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) situation, including HIV in the country. The plan aligns itself with IPPF Strategic Framework (2024-2028), while responding to the national SRHR and geopolitical, economic and social realities, which define the context in which LPPA will strive to achieve its vision; “A healthy and inclusive society where freedom of choice in Sexual, Reproductive Health and Rights, and equal opportunities are guaranteed for all”. 

This Strategic Plan articulates the strategic identity of LPPA which includes  vision, mission statement and a set of values. These three elements outline why LPPA exists, what it intends to achieve and how it does its work.
