National Abortion Federation

For General Operating Support

Overview
The National Abortion Federation is the professional organization of abortion providers in the United States. Its membership of 400 private and nonprofit clinics provides a range of educational programs for health care professionals, including continuing medical education, clinical policy guidelines, and training sites for medical residents. Over the next two years, the Federation will focus on expanding the pool of abortion providers by reaching out to nurse practitioners, midwives, and physician assistants. It will also continue its quality-assessment program, which evaluates member facilities for compliance with rigorous standards for abortion care services. The Federation will also produce accurate scientific information about abortion and the experiences of abortion patients to demonstrate the real-life impact of restrictions on abortion access. Other Hewlett Foundation grantees report that these patient stories are essential to their pro-choice advocacy. By ensuring an adequate pool of trained providers working in high-quality health facilities and advocating for the availability of abortion as an integral part of women's health care, the Federation makes reproductive choice a concrete reality for American women.
