Ipas

For A Project To Increase Youth Access To Abortion Services

Overview
This grant would allow Ipas to test a new model for increasing the availability of quality reproductive health and safe abortion services for young women in Zambia and Sierra Leone. In Zambia, Ipas will focus on community activities designed to ensure that young women have the knowledge, skills, social support, and care in their communities to prevent and manage unwanted pregnancies. In Sierra Leone, Ipas will strengthen links between communities and health facilities and increase the capacity of the public health sector to provide quality reproductive health services for young women, including post-abortion care and post-abortion family planning.

for support of Ipas' regional strategy in Francophone West Africa  
This program grant will support Ipas’ Francophone Africa regional program to improve access to quality abortion services. Since the office was established in 2015, Ipas has become a leading and established presence in the region, working closely with governments, advocates, and clinicians to advance abortion access and reproductive rights. Their approach is holistic, adapting their programming to the abortion ecosystem in each country. This grant is aligned with the Global Reproductive Equity strategy outcomes to strengthen the sexual and reproductive health ecosystem and to support legalization and access to safe abortion in Francophone West Africa.
