About us

About DSW

Deutsche Stiftung Weltbevölkerung (DSW) is a global development organisation that focuses on the needs and potential of the largest youth generation in history. We are committed to creating demand for and access to health information, services and supplies, and economic empowerment for youth.

We achieve this by engaging in advocacy, capacity development, and reproductive health initiatives, so that young people are empowered to lead healthy and self-determined lives. With our headquarters in Hannover, Germany, DSW operates two liaison offices in Berlin and Brussels, as well as maintaining a strong presence in Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.

About EPF

“Bringing together Parliamentarians committed to protecting the sexual and reproductive health and rights of the world’s most vulnerable.” The European Parliamentary Forum on Population and Development (EPF) is a network of members of parliaments from across Europe who are committed to protecting the sexual and reproductive health of the world’s most vulnerable people, both at home and overseas.

We believe that women should always have the right to decide upon the number of children they wish to have, and should never be denied the education or other means to achieve this that they are entitled to by law.

We believe that it makes sense personally, economically and environmentally for governments to devote development aid to initiatives protecting people’s sexual and reproductive health and rights.

EPF began as a project of the International Planned Parenthood Federation European Network (IPPFEN). It was legally registered in Belgium and recognised by Royal Decree in 2000. In 2004, EPF became a fully independent not-for-profit organisation.
