This project aims to enhance the sexual and reproductive health and rights for marginalized groups in targeted countries. It seeks to reduce the number of unsafe abortions and offer wider and safer choices for women and girls to choose whether, when, with whom and how many children to have. The project provides direct support to increase access and usage of family planning and safe and legal abortion services. Project activities include: (1) conducting advocacy for improved policies and regulations around family planning and abortion; (2) holding community-mobilization events providing information about safe and legal abortion and where to access it; and (3) increasing access to high-quality safe abortion with integrated post-abortion family planning services.
