KIT works with medical societies, networks of health professionals, universities, (international) NGOs, governments and funders to ensure that programmes, policies and debates around safe abortion are evidence-informed and embedded in a rights-based approach. We also develop and provide trainings and resources on abortion for health professionals and other actors working on the advancement of sexual and reproductive health and rights.
We work from a public health and human rights approach in line with the World Health Organization’s international guidelines on abortion care and the key human rights standards on abortion. We adapt our work and approaches to the social and political context of each country, including the existing national regulatory frameworks.
Our focus areas:
Needs Assessment for a Multi-Country Safe Abortion Project
RESPECT (Research, Education on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights and Advocacy on Equality)
Extending Safe Abortion Advocacy with the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics
