The RCOG Leading Safe Choices initiative aims to strengthen the competence and raise the standing of family planning professionals in South Africa and Tanzania. This section of the site provides information about this initiative.
Expanding contraceptive choice, particularly long-acting reversible methods such as intrauterine devices (IUDs) and implants, and improving access to safe abortion services dramatically improves the health of women and their children.
The RCOG Leading Safe Choices initiative aims to put the evidence into practice by strengthening the competence and raising the standing of family planning and abortion care professionals. In collaboration with colleagues in South Africa and Tanzania, we will promote best practices in postpartum contraception and comprehensive abortion care (CAC) in South Africa, and comprehensive post-abortion care (CPAC) in Tanzania.
