To mark International Safe Abortion Day, MSI was delighted to launch our new 2019/20 My Body, My Voice report, alongside presentations from partners at Ipas and the Asia Safe Abortion Partnership at our International Safe Abortion Day briefing.
My Body, My Voice report
Globally, 1 in 4 pregnancies end in abortion. Yet, with abortion care stigmatised and silenced, we rarely hear from women and girls directly about their experiences. To help change this and identify how our services can improve, every year we interview 1,800+ of our safe abortion clients.
Whilst every experience is unique, these responses can help us to identify trends and potential solutions. Based on what our clients want and value, we learn how they hear about services, how they access them, and the support, or lack of it, experienced along the way.
Last year, we launched our first My Body, My Voice report, and this year, we are pleased to publish client insights from even more settings.
Our International Safe Abortion Day Briefing
To mark International Safe Abortion Day, we were pleased to hold a special briefing to launch the report.
Given the focus of this year's International Safe Abortion Day on self-management, the briefing showcased presentations from Ipas on innovations in self-care and the Asia Safe Abortion Partnership on the rights-based case for self-management, as well as learnings from MSI's new evidence summary on safe self-management of medical abortion.
