Through the @Hewlett_Found-supported project in West and Central Africa, we partner with @JVSAssociation in Bénin to create an enabling environment for youth access to #SRHR, including safe abortions.

Obstetric fistula is a beacon of inequality, as it occurs where women are already living with limited resources and access to healthcare. Additionally, once fistula occurs, women often face significant stigma and isolation which can impact their social and economic wellbeing. https://twitter.com/EngenderHealth/status/1364605591528886273
