Today is the day that we celebrate the hard work of SAAF’s grantee partners in ensuring no one is left behind when it comes to accessing safe abortion. The theme of this year’s International Safe Abortion Day is abortion access during the COVID-19 pandemic, with a focus on self-managed abortion.

Thank you to SAAF partners who helped create this short video, showing the power of abortion care being in our own hands, thanks to safe medications like Misoprostol and Mifepristone.
Please share the video using the hashtag #IManageMyAbortion.
WIth thanks to TICAH, Hidden Pockets Collective, Si Jeunesse Savait, RHTC, Socorristas En Red, and Coherinet for taking part!
