Governance and Structure

SAAF is administered by a four person secretariat hosted by the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) in London, UK.

It is overseen and governed by an independent multi-agency Board which consists of representatives from international NGOs, donor governments and individuals with relevant experience and technical expertise.

The Board provides strategic direction and oversight of the fund while the Secretariat manages the day-to-day oversight of the fund, distributing and monitoring the grants and providing technical support to the grantees.
