Global health advocacy

As part of our Global Health Strategy, we want to inform and help stimulate engagement with the standards of women’s healthcare around the world.

Find out more about how the RCOG advocates for women’s right to health services, contraception and domestic safety.

International Safe Abortion Day

The RCOG is working to protect the fundamental right for individuals to make their own decisions in regard to their sexual lives and reproduction. This extends to offering women and girls across the world high-quality abortion and post-abortion services.

International Safe Abortion Day is an opportunity to highlight the great work being done in this field, as well as discussing the challenges ahead.

16 Days of Activism
