SIPD was founded in 2007. SIPD’s strategies include public education, media campaigns, capacity building, community engagement and outreach, alliance building, peer support, and documentation of intersex lived realities. The community engagements range from home visits to intensive discussions with medical personnel in the local hospitals; they also include parents and peer–support groups, and help families of intersex people (parents of intersex people or intersex youth) to developp their skills to improve their revenue. The group also organizes meeting groups of the community, local and religious leaders and medical personnel in order to educate, increase their knowledge and awareness of the existence and rights of intersex people in their communities. They also teach at schools, participate in many media interviews, and use social media for public education.
