About

This project aims to reduce the number of women having unsafe abortions in Nigeria and to expand the access to reproductive healthcare and safe abortions within the country.

It provides information about the causes and consequences of unsafe abortions through training sessions run with 35 coalition activists and the support of Women Help Women (WHW).  

The project also organises smaller training sessions with allies in Lagos, Edo and Imo state communities.

The telephone hotline facility will be enhanced with a toll free number also, and there will be further dissemination of information about the consequences of unsafe abortion and reproductive health to vulnerable women such as sex workers, indigenous groups, people living with HIV and AIDS, and survivors of violence in particular.
