Addressing Medical and Legal Issues in the DRC
The SAFE ENGAGE project partnered with Coalition de Lutte Contre les Grossesses Non Désirées to provide fact sheets they can use to inform judges, police chiefs, doctors, associations of medical professionals, and other decisionmakers of the 2018 changes governing legality of abortion in the DRC. These materials are intended to empower these key groups with the information needed to follow both the letter of the law and their own professional obligations.
However, the challenge now is to spread awareness of this change to legal and medical authorities across a vast and politically decentralized nation the size of Western Europe.
