Increased access to safe abortion in Armenia

  Armavir Development Center                 Armenia

Armavir Development Center is developing a mobile application for all types of cell phones to provide individualized and confidential consultations for women in rural communities of Armenia seeking safe abortion. Through the app, women connect to a call center which links them to gynecologists for safe abortion care, psychologists for mental health support, and/or legal specialists for advice and assistance, depending on their needs. Women seeking an abortion have the choice of visiting a clinic or waiting for medical staff to visit their village. Doctors follow-up with patients through phone calls and the app to confirm the success of the abortion. The innovation will roll out in 100 rural communities and will reach women who were previously out of reach and underserviced.
