How to improve safe abortion care in South Africa’s public health facilities: Findings from a 2018 assessment

Despite the fact that abortion is legal in South Africa under a range of circumstances and available in public health facilities throughout the country, many women and girls continue to seek clandestine, unsafe abortions that put their health and lives at risk. To ensure well-informed program design and solid support and engagement from program stakeholders and beneficiaries, Ipas conducted a strategic assessment on abortion in Limpopo and Gauteng Provinces in 2018. Three factsheets contained here present recommendations and key findings compiled from various information-gathering methods used in our assessment.
