The Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance Policy is a US government policy aimed to restrict US government funds to foreign organizations “that perform or actively promote abortion as a method of family planning in other nations.” It prohibits foreign (non-US) NGOs and commercial entities who are US government fund recipients from the following, regardless of funding source:
- Performing or actively promoting abortion as a method of family planning
- Providing advice or information (including counseling and public campaigns) on abortion as a pregnancy option or the availability of abortion services (including referrals)
- Advocating or lobbying a foreign government to legalize or make available abortion
- Providing financial support to any other non-US NGO that conducts these services
The PowerPoint presentation provides an overview of the policy, plus information on compliance and monitoring and cases for discussion. Also included is a training package on compliance and monitoring.
