Strengthening safe, legal abortions in Africa
Oct 18, 2017
Six million cases of unsafe abortion occur in Africa annually, leading to the deaths of 29 000 women each year.
As tens of thousands of African women continue to die from unsafe abortion, the Pan African Parliament (PAP) wants to strengthen the legal and policy frameworks for safe, legal abortions in Africa.
This issue, and a report on the subject, were introduced at PAP’s Fifth Ordinary Session which concludes on Wednesday, at the Gallagher Conference Centre in Midrand.
