Reproductive Health Rights

Reproductive Health Rights (2)

AWC in conjunction with the Reproductive Health and Rights Alliance (RHRA) is working on a project to create and promote awareness on unsafe abortion among the public, journalists, editors and other media practitioners through building partnerships.

The objectives of the project are:

  • To create awareness on unsafe abortion among the public as part of an effort to facilitate and provoke debate on the need for responsive and comprehensive reproductive health rights within a well defined socio-economic and legal framework.
  • To seek interventions on how best to address unsafe abortion in Kenya.
