Ipas works to train health-care providers in abortion services at or after 13 weeks in accordance with the World Health Organization’s guidelines on safe abortion care—and we partner with health systems to introduce and expand these life-saving services. We also work with communities and partner organizations to reduce the abortion-related stigma and many other barriers that prevent women and girls from accessing care earlier in pregnancy.

Dr. Georgina Díaz Orozco is a doctor and Ipas-trained abortion provider in Guadalajara, Mexico—and one of the few providers in Jalisco state to offer abortion care after the first trimester. “It is very important that people have access to this care,” she says.
