logo1Asia Safe Abortion Partnership (ASAP)

Formed in 2008, this network has members from Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Turkey and Vietnam. ASAP is the only network in Asia working on liberalizing restrictive abortion laws and allocating resources toward providing safe abortion services. It focuses on south-south capacity building and providing a forum for experience sharing and interactions. Members and partners at country level are supported in their advocacy work through small grants, networking and capacity building opportunities.

 “Every day thousands of Asian women driven by desperation, poverty and social stigma seek help from unskilled providers, or quacks, to end unplanned pregnancies. Every day more than 100 such women – many of them young girls just beginning their lives – die as a result. Tens of thousands more suffer life-long disabilities. In Asia, unsafe abortion accounts for 12 percent of all pregnancy-related, deaths… according to the World Health Organization.”
