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.

Since starting volunteering to encourage other men to learn about contraception and gender-based violence, José has seen the positive change in his community. Those small achievements encourage him to keep going.
Juan organizes talks – mainly with other men – to promote the importance of contraceptive use, and women and children's health in El Salvador.
Juana is a health promoter delivering care across four local villages. She receives a quarterly supply of contraceptives that she distributes at low prices to the women in her community.
The issues of sexual and reproductive health and contraceptive care are still taboo in many communities in El Salvador. Changing attitudes to improve the lives of individuals and families remain a vital focus. Volunteers like Elga remain integral to this process to bring about positive change for the future.
Inspired by her mother who had previously been a volunteer for 15 years, and in the absence of a local public health facility, Alicia decided to become a Pro-Familia volunteer to support her community.
To ensure her clients’ confidentiality, Blanca has created a private room with a sofa where she provides counselling and administers injectable contraceptive methods. By creating a private space, Blanca has built up trust in the community and women prefer to go to her for contraception and advice.
