Mozambique

In 2014, Mozambique liberalized its abortion law with the goal of reducing maternal mortality by significantly broadening women’s access to safe abortion care. Prior to 2014, Ipas worked with the Ministry of Health and other partners in Mozambique to improve training and service delivery related to postabortion care and to conduct an assessment of abortion and postabortion services in public facilities across the country. Today, Ipas is continuing its partnership with the government and other NGOs in Mozambique to increase the health system’s capacity to make high-quality abortion care and contraceptive services available and accessible throughout the nation.
