HL Deb 09 April 1998 vol 588 cc167-8WA
Lord Braine of Wheatley

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the United Nations Fund for Population Activities or the International Planned Parenthood Federation are funding or supporting the Peruvian Population Control Programme; and, if so, to what extent. [HL1161]

Lord Whitty

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) programmes of assistance to Peru promote the rights of women and men to better sexual and reproductive health, including full information and free choice about contraceptive methods and services. In their dialogue with Peruvian authorities both organisations actively promote the standards of reproductive health care agreed at the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development.
