What we do

We are a network of over 1,500 international, regional and national organisations, groups and individuals in 129 countries who support safe abortion as a woman’s right on both public health and human rights grounds.

The International Campaign for Women’s Right to Safe Abortion is a membership-based network and registered charity that includes local, national, regional and international organisations and agencies, as well as individuals such as healthcare providers, policymakers and academics, all of whom support the right to safe abortion. Our mission is to bring together organisations and individuals who support and promote the right to safe abortion through knowledge creation and sharing, network and coalition building, and advocacy.

Goals

  • Safe abortion as a universally accessible, publicly available and funded healthcare service.
  • Full social and legal decriminalisation of abortion.

Intended outcomes

  • Increased attention to and support for the right to safe abortion in key international, regional, and national decision-making spaces.
  • Increased visibility and public awareness of the negative impact of unsafe abortion.
  • Contribute to the reduction of stigma around obtaining an abortion and around the provision of safe abortion care.
  • Greater understanding that the right to decide whether and when to have children is a critical aspect of gender equality, sexual and reproductive autonomy, and the right to life and health.
