Raising a glass to Roe v. Wade’s 49th anniversary. I don’t have a lot of hope that we’ll get to celebrate its 50th . Thanks to those who provide, facilitate, & fund abortions. Respect to those who have chosen/may later choose abortion. Power to those working for repro justice.

Last year, Nigerian medical student @ebereillustrate’s image of a Black fetus in the womb went viral, highlighting the need for #diversity in medical illustration. Now, some of his illustrations will be published in a clinical handbook!

Benin

Benin, situated on the West African coast, has a large youth population. Early marriage for girls is common, with many girls marrying before the age of 19. Women have lower socioeconomic status than men, little opportunity to earn a living, and limited access to health care. As a result, women and girls in Benin suffer extremely high rates of maternal injury and death.

EngenderHealth provides technical support on family planning and postabortion care at the regional, district, and community levels in Benin. Our work in the country helps to improve policy and service environments for abortion care, ensure youth-friendly services, and build the capacity of civil society organizations to advocate for expanded access to safe abortion services.

Previously, the main focus of EngenderHealth’s work in Benin was addressing  obstetric fistula. Through the Fistula Care project, we partnered with Mercy Ships International to support 151 fistula repairs and train 2 doctors in fistula repair surgery in the country.
