Mobile Safe Abortion Care Clinic Project (MSACCP)
LET US STAY ALIVE (LUSA) Democratic Republic of the Congo
Let Us Stay Alive (LUSA) uses a mobile clinic model to decentralize safe abortion care services for women and girls in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Working closely with partners including the Ministry of Health, LUSA trains community health workers, nurses and midwives to use cellular communication to refer women to one of the three mobile clinics. Women seeking an abortion schedule an appointment in a mobile clinic or in their homes. Women experiencing complications from unsafe abortion are transferred to health centers for care. Awareness of these services and safe abortion is raised through TV/radio campaigns and educational sessions.
