Who we are

The Kiribati Family Health Association (KFHA), established in 1985, is a locally owned, globally connected, leading NGO service provider working to promote sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) for all people in Kiribati. KFHA works in close collaboration with local, national and international partners in addressing HIV & AIDs, STI and sexual and reproductive health (SRH) including family planning issues.  KFHA has been registered under the Incorporated Society Act 2006 since 2011, and was accredited as a full member of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) in 2016.

KFHA works towards an environment where all people have control over their own bodies and are able to make the right choices for their own lives. The overall objective of KFHA is to ensure that people of Kiribati are well informed through public awareness programs and training modules about their own bodies, to enable them to control and master their own choices and destinies in the pursuit of good health for themselves.

Our Vision

KFHA envisages a place in which all I-Kiribati are able to achieve good sexual and reproductive health, with access to appropriate services, and are empowered to realise their sexual and reproductive rights, regardless of age, gender, or other circumstance.

Our Mission

Improve the quality of life of individuals and families by providing services and awareness on reproductive health, family planning, STIs, HIV & AIDS, and individual rights, especially for the most marginalised women, men and young people.
Engage the active participation of key stakeholders, including community groups and family units, to empower them to be responsive and responsible to their needs in order to realise their sexual and reproductive health and rights.


KFHA believes in:

  • The rights for all to make informed decisions;
  • Social inclusion;
  • Gender equality and diversity
  • Participation of youth, people with disabilities, people living with HIV & AIDS, and LGBT+ communities;
  • Working in partnership with individual, communities, governments, NGOs and donor agencies;
  • Sexual rights as human rights;
  • In the significant contribution of volunteerism to advance KFHA’s mission.
