Comprehensive Safe Abortion Programming: The Pathfinder International Approach
This paper presents Pathfinder's comprehensive approach to safe abortion programming including provider training, client friendly counseling, addressing the needs of vulnerable populations including youth, community mobilization, and advocacy. It highlights successful examples from country programs in India, Ghana, Viet Nam, South Africa, Ethiopia, Brazil, Peru, and Mozambique.
This publication explores strategies to advance abortion access and rights in four countries—Mozambique, Burkina Faso, Tanzania, and DRC—with differing degrees of legal and social restrictiveness. Through semi-structured interviews with Pathfinder field offices and partners, this publication highlights approaches to advance abortion access and rights common across all four countries, as well as approaches unique to each country’s legal and social context.
