Every year, hundreds of millions of women in Sub-Sahara Africa travel to their local health clinics to receive regular contraceptive injections. Injectables are popular because they are safe, discrete, highly effective at preventing unintended pregnancy, and last for several months. However, for many women, travelling to a clinic to receive a contraceptive injection is not feasible. The costs of travel are too great; the distance too far; and the time spent away from family or work too great a challenge to overcome.
The Safe Abortion Action Fund (SAAF) which is hosted by IPPF was set up in 2006 in order to support grass-roots organisations to increase access to safe abortion. One such organisation which received support under the last round of funding is called Lady Mermaid's Bureau.
