As the Women’s Integrated Sexual Health programme will deliver integrated sexual and reproductive services, we cannot provide a figure for the number of safe abortions which will be supported. The programme’s aim is to help women and girls avoid recourse to unsafe abortion and to increase access to voluntary family planning.
