  2. Leading Safe Choices is a three year programme which aims to improve the competence of healthcare professionals in South Africa and Tanzania to deliver high quality postpartum family planning (PPFP) in both countries, as well as comprehensive abortion care (CAC) in South Africa and comprehensive post-abortion care (CPAC) in Tanzania.
  3. Approximately 225 million women in the world have no access to family planning and therefore little control over whether and when they become pregnant. Providing these women with the choice to use effective contraception and to space their babies by 18-24 months, would prevent 54 million unintended pregnancies, 79,000 maternal deaths and 1.1 million infant deaths.

    On top of this, around 22 million unsafe abortions take place each year, resulting in the death of nearly 50,000 women. Another 5 million women suffer injury as a result of complications due to unsafe abortion, often leading to chronic disability. Safe abortion should be and can be available and accessible for all women to the full extent that the law allows.
