COMPREHENSIVE ABORTION CARE (CAC)
Unsafe abortion contributes significantly to a high maternal mortality in
Ghana, particularly in the three northern regions. Although the abortion law of
Ghana is relatively liberal, safe abortion services are non-existent in some
districts, knowledge of the abortion law is low and stigma is high. Through this SAAF funded project, MABIA-Ghana is working in two under-served districts of Northern Ghana in the Upper East and Northern regions. The project aims to increase knowledge of legal rights to abortion among school students and introduce quality, non-judgmental, comprehensive abortion care to women and girls in public health facilities, at the same time ensuring that two midwifery training colleges are able to provide quality pre-service training on safe abortion to trainee midwives.
