Nihal Said

Dear IBP Members,


We are happy to announce that IPPF have added a new module on Abortion Self-care Online Course, "Abortion Matters: An Introduction", which is available in English, French and Spanish. Feel free to share the course and updates about the new self-care module with your networks, and with the partners that you work with.


This course was created to support people and organisations interested in expanding their knowledge on abortion. By going through the six modules, this course will teach you all the basics of abortion, and increase your confidence and ability to raise awareness and advocate for abortion. In the course, you will find information on Sexual and Reproductive Rights, abortion messaging, abortion education, abortion advocacy and activism, and abortion self-care.
