With the current global situation resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, Safe Abortion Advocacy Initiative- A Global South Engagement (SAIGE) and its partners are concerned of its impact on access to safe abortion for women and girls globally and especially in the Global South region. Time-sensitive response is important and we are deeply concerned that additionally-created waiting time and economic hurdles, such as travel ban and shutdown of non-essential jobs and businesses, will disproportionately impact vulnerable women and girls and therefore request the governments to urgently take cognisance and create strategies to mitigate the impact. 


Involve yourself in social, political and economic empowerment of women and girls.
