for support of Ipas' regional strategy in Francophone West Africa  
This project will support implementation of Ipas’ relatively new program to address unsafe abortion in Francophone West Africa. Ipas’ strategy for the subregion seeks to train health care providers to provide abortion services safely and advocate for improvements in the policy environment for abortion availability. To improve the quality of abortion services available to women in Francophone countries, Ipas works in close partnership with ministries of health, regional health bodies like the West Africa Health Organization, and a diverse set of research and advocacy organizations. Strategically, this grant is aligned with the international reproductive health substrategy’s goal to reduce the incidence of unsafe abortion in Francophone West Africa, particularly in Ouagadougou Partnership member countries.
