Please join WHO, HRP and the IBP Network for a webinar this Thursday presenting photos and positive stories of health as it relates to comprehensive abortion care and post-abortion family planning, from countries in four WHO Regions.
With opening remarks from Pascale Allotey, Director of the WHO Department of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Research (SRH) and a discussion with experts and photographers from Moldova, Nepal, Pakistan and Sierra Leone, moderated by Vismita Gupta-Smith, WHO Head-Strategy, Planning & Coordination, Department of Communications, this will be a rich discussion on the importance of storytelling and approaches to communicating on sexual and reproductive health and rights.
The WHO guidance is clear: abortion care is health care, and health is a human right. Even still, abortion remains a highly stigmatized issue. In order for safe, respectful and affordable abortion care to be accessible to all who need it, when they need it, there is a need for continuous advocacy for the right to comprehensive abortion care, and against stigma impacting those who seek and provide this health care.
