Tackling abortion-related stigma


Abortion-related stigma has significant and far-reaching effects on abortion care providers, including healthcare professionals, counsellors, and support staff who are involved in providing abortion services. The impact of stigma on these providers can be both personal and professional, affecting their well-being, job satisfaction, mental health, and the overall quality of abortion and post-abortion care they provide.

Join the RCOG and partners from IPPF and MSI Reproductive Choices at this important online event to explore the impact of stigma on healthcare workers that provide abortion care, and effective strategies to tackle abortion-related stigma faced by these providers at all levels.
