Ensuring That The Woman Is Safe - Watch Now

We continue our mini series on unsafe abortions with two leading exponents of improved reproductive health services in Ghana today; Ms. Faustina Fynn – Nyame, Country Director, Marie Stopes International and Dr. Jehu Appiah, Country Director, IPAS. They discuss the rising death statistics from unsafe abortions, their social impact and the law on abortion. What is happening in our public health facilities? What is the impact of social stigmatisation on the demand for safe medical services? What do you say to a doctor who refuses to save the life of a woman who has attempted self abortion? The two leading voices help us ask the right questions and suggest positive ways forward.
