Every time a woman speaks up about her experience of sexual violence and she’s not believed, rape culture flourishes. Every time you hear a survivor’s story: 1-Listen. 2-Believe. 3-Support. https://t.co/FG2M7sWbdk #orangetheworld #GenerationEquality

Great session! One takeaway from Maria Bakaroudis of @UNFPA_ESARO: Training and supportive supervision of healthcare providers on rights and needs of people with disabilities is key for provision of respectful care & inclusive health services #ICASA2019Rwanda #ICASA2019

Changing Policies and Attitudes: Postabortion Care in the Philippines (PDF, 417 KB)
Compass, 2003, No. 1. Intended broadly for the professional community involved in international public health and development, Compass is a periodic publication featuring snapshots of the results of EngenderHealth’s work in the areas of family planning, prevention of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections, and maternal care. This issue reports on how women suffering complications from incomplete abortion were managed with a greater degree of clinical safety, efficiency, and humanity, thanks to a program called Prevention and Management of Abortion Complications (PMAC). Developed and implemented in the Philippines by EngenderHealth in collaboration with the nation’s Department of Health, PMAC also promoted an evolution in providers’ attitudes and values, which led to improved counseling skills, better care for postabortion clients, and increased use of manual vacuum aspiration in the clinical treatment of complications.

Counseling the Postabortion Client: A Training Curriculum
A training guide for postabortion care providers (including doctors, nurses, and midwives) who interact with clients before, during, and immediately after the treatment procedure. This innovative curriculum expands the realm of traditional postabortion care counseling services—which tend to focus primarily on the provision of family planning information and methods and lack emphasis on emotional support and communication—by teaching crucial skills needed to improve communication between providers and clients. An updated version of EngenderHealth’s 1999 work-in-progress version, Counseling the Postabortion Patient: Training for Service Providers, this volume contains step-by-step guidelines for conducting a training workshop and participant handouts.
