Until #familyplanning is a universally available choice in all settings, this human right will not be fully realized.

At #UNGA, @UNFPA and partners are calling for the fulfillment of this unrealized right: https://t.co/pjB2z7Ilwr


We love the pill & all other forms of contraception: allowing millions to plan & space pregnancies. How empowering is that?! #WheresTheFP

Cape Verde

Cape Verde, an island nation off the northwest coast of Africa, has made marked improvements in health care during the past decade. Maternal and infant mortality have fallen, and efforts are in place to help this trend continue. As part of the Action for West Africa Region—Reproductive Health (AWARE-RH) Project, EngenderHealth worked with local partners in Cape Verde to increase access to postabortion care.

Increasing Access to Postabortion Care Services
When a woman has had an unsafe abortion she needs timely care to ensure that her long-term health, and her life, is safeguarded.  In Cape Verde, EngenderHealth trained 14 health care workers to provide comprehensive postabortion care services, including counseling, referral, and infection prevention.  In addition, our work encouraged the integration of postabortion care into routine maternal care services.

EngenderHealth’s work in Cape Verde ended in 2008.
