FIGO, Partners Release Needs Assessment Reports On Abortion For Countries In Africa, Latin America

FIGO: Improving access to safe abortion
“…To thoroughly understand the differing national views on abortion, and the capacity of 10 FIGO national member societies, this year FIGO, with our partners KIT Royal Tropical Institute, have undertaken a comprehensive needs assessment. The aim was to learn as much as possible in order to develop a proposal to strengthen the capacity of each member society, in particular to raise their capacity to lead safe abortion advocacy efforts and bring change to their countries. The needs assessment involved literature reviews, online surveys, key informant interviews, and workshops in eight countries in Africa and two in Latin American.
