Let's be courageous in the fight for equality, health, & human rights.
In an African nation where abortion was only recently legalized, the barriers to access are public education, medical training and money. An $18-million Canadian project is trying to help, and Mozambicans say it’s saving lives.
In addition to donating, you can make a gift in many ways to support the sexual and reproductive health of women and families.
Unsafe abortion remains a leading cause of maternal death in sub-Saharan Africa. Pathfinder reduces barriers and increases access to comprehensive safe abortion care—that is, safe abortion and postabortion care services.
Program Highlight: Supporting Family Planning and Abortion Services (Impacto)
The Supporting Family Planning and Abortion Services project (locally known as Impacto) seeks to boost gender equality in nine districts of Mozambique’s Manica and Tete provinces. Impacto addresses myths, beliefs, and misconceptions about abortion and contraception by building the capacity of community-based organizations to help protect women’s and young people’s rights.
Funder: Government of Canada
Access to safe abortion care in Mozambique is the law, and it is every woman’s right to seek this option should she choose it. Pathfinder’s Impacto Project works to destigmatize this critical work—saving lives and shifting social norms in the process.”
