The Centre for Women’s Global Health has developed a number of free resources to promote best practice and improve healthcare provision.
Abortion Care and Abortion Advocacy eLearning
The Making Abortion Safe Programme’s online learning modules provide health workers, students and educators with practical knowledge about abortion care and abortion advocacy they can apply wherever they work in the world.
Best Practice Papers
Best Practice Papers on abortion, post-abortion care, post-abortion contraception and telemedicine for abortion bring together guidance from organisations such as the World Health Organization (WHO), the RCOG and NICE.
These papers were updated in 2022 and peer-reviewed by international sexual and reproductive health and rights experts. Those on abortion and post-abortion care are available in English, French, Arabic and Spanish.
If you would like to adapt the Best Practice Papers for your local context get in touch with the Centre for Women’s Global Health on firstname.lastname@example.org.
