A Japan-based NGO, JOICFP is active in the field of population, reproductive health (RH) and rights where it works to improve the health status of men, women and young people of developing countries. The NGO was established in 1968 and grew out of a desire to share the lessons of family planning and maternal and child health that flourished in Japan as a community-based movement oriented toward preventive health. JOICFP has seen its activities spread to over 30 countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America where community people remain central to all efforts.
JOICFP is inspired by a vision of a world in which the basic human needs of individuals and families are met, where people are free of poverty and enjoy good health and welfare. The NGO sees its mission as enabling individuals to make their own choices regarding reproductive health and rights while ensuring access to quality services and appropriate information.
