Women Help Women is an international activist nonprofit organization working on access to abortion. They are feminist activists, trained counsellors, medical professionals, and researchers based across four continents. They have a strong focus on supporting abortion, especially in places where abortion is restricted by laws, stigma, and lack of access. Their projects include (a) a global telehealth service for abortion and (b) partnerships with local feminist groups around the world to support increased access to abortion pills.
Why we invest:
Tara Health provided a restricted grant for Women Help Women’s US-based work, mainly their SASS project, which was launched by Women Help Women in the US in 2015. SASS seeks to change the discourse around self-managed abortion based on international evidence and experience. They do this by widely disseminating information about the transformative potential of demedicalized models of abortion services and abortion pills.
