Within Reach: Expanding Access to Safe Abortion is a multimedia advocacy tool to frame policy discussion around safe abortion, particularly in Africa. Produced by Population Reference Bureau under the SAFE ENGAGE project, the presentation uses the latest data and evidence to illustrate how policy changes can decrease maternal mortality by improving equitable access to safe abortion services. Advocates can use this new resource to make the case for safe abortion with policy audiences and influencers around the world.
The presentation, authored by Lori Ashford, consultant, and Marissa Pine Yeakey, program director, was developed with guidance from a global Technical Advisory Group of researchers, advocates, and medical professionals.
