About

This project aims to build support for Malawi’s draft Termination of Pregnancy Bill, currently being considered by the legislature. The Centre for Solutions Journalism plan to use various media as a powerful advocacy platform, with a focus on a weekly column in a major national newspaper. Using various professional and community leaders to contribute, this project targets lawmakers and government officials as their audience, to impress upon them the importance of enacting the law, which will decriminalise abortion across Malawi. Beyond this small target audience, the exposure of these issues in the media will also play an important role in educating the general public about the importance honoring SRHR, including abortion.
