Abortion

IPPF works to ensure that every woman and girl has the human right to choose to be pregnant or not and we will continue to supply and support safe and legal abortion services and care. We are committed to reducing the number of deaths of women and girls who are forced to turn to unsafe abortion methods. Make Abortion Safe. Make Abortion Legal. For all Women and Girls. Everywhere.

An interview with Joel Akolly Eklou, Director of Marketing, Communication and Resource Mobilisation at Association Togolaise pour le Bien-Être Familial (ATBEF), on the impact of COVID-19 in Togo.
IWD (8 March 2019) is a time to celebrate the achievements of fearless women globally. We’re honored to highlight the passion and commitment of doctors, nurses, peer educators, activists and volunteers who dedicate their efforts to advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights.
Yaori and his wife Ami heard about vasectomies on the radio. Having six children already, they decided to head to their local family planning clinic, ATBEF, for more information. ATBEF is currently the only provider of keyhole vasectomies there and to date, they have performed 159 procedures.
In Togo, 17% of young women will give birth before the age of 18. Contraception use in local communities was 17% before IPPF's Member Association ATBEF began their outreach work in schools and villages. Today the rate is 23% nationwide.
