Breaking The Cycle

  Fight AIDS Malawi (FAM)                 Malawi

Fight Aids Malawi (FAM) implements several approaches to expand and decentralize access to safe abortion services and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) information for women and girls living in rural villages of Malawi. These include: 1) a new informational online interactive forum, 2) outreach clinic visits to villages and schools by trained health workers and peer counsellors, 3) community education initiatives which address abortion related stigma and ensure that the innovation’s progress is sustained, and 4) improvements to the capacity of rural health facilities through the provision of abortion service equipment as well as training in care provision and supply chain management. FAM will use the evidence generated from this project to advocate for increased resource allocation from local government for SRHR and safe abortion projects.
