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.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of the Francophone Africa Safe Abortion Network  
This grant to Ipas will support the establishment of an action network for safe abortion in Francophone West Africa. Following the Hewlett Foundation-supported convening of safe abortion champions in December 2019, the foundation and other stakeholders decided to establish a regional movement for safe abortion with a small staff to support the work of national coalitions. The network will convene and coordinate efforts within and across countries and support cross-learning and advocacy for all aspects of safe abortion programming. This grant will be co-funded by the Packard Foundation and the Foundation for a Just Society International and is aligned with the International Reproductive Health substrategy to end unsafe abortion in Francophone West Africa.
