Dear SCORAngels,

It is with lots of excitement that we are opening the call for this year’s Small Working Group for “International Access to Safe Abortion Day” campaign!

International Access to Safe Abortion Day is celebrated annually on September 28 and serves as a reminder that access to safe and legal abortion is essential for the realization of human rights and should be recognized as an essential reproductive healthcare service! 

We are looking for passionate and dedicated members who are willing to invest their time and energy on this campaign and enjoy a great learning experience on the way alongside fellow SCORA members.

Members of the SWG will get the opportunity to brainstorm, draft and develop the campaign for International Access to Safe Abortion Day 2020. 

Goals of the SWG:

  • Increase medical students knowledge, skills and engagement on the issue of access to safe abortionInter
  • Discuss how abortion is tackled in the medical curriculum across regions, and to what extent. 
  • Provide NMOs with adequate resources to conduct activities on access to safe abortion on a local, national and regional level and share their achievements.
  • Promote the Maternal Health and Access to Safe Abortion program. 

Selection Criteria:

  • Experience relevant for the SWG
