The Center for Health, Human Rights and Development (CEHURD), in partnership with Ipas Africa Alliance, held a regional exchange learning webinar on 25 August 2021, hosted by the Africa Coalition for Safe Abortion (ACSA). ACSA is a broad-based coalition of regional health and human rights civil society organizations that are committed to advocate for access to safe and legal abortion services in line with the Maputo Protocol. This one-page fact sheet outlines the discussion and actions taken during the learning exchange.
Sexual and reproductive health care is often neglected or difficult to access during a crisis, and this can in turn drive more people to seek unsafe abortions that risk their health and lives. For these reasons, Ipas Nigeria conducted a study to understand the impact of Nigeria’s COVID-19 lockdowns on access to safe abortion. Overall, study findings show that the lockdowns exacerbated the pandemic’s impact on women’s access to safe abortion services.
