Access to safe abortion is still a huge gap in the South African healthcare system, despite the fact that it has been 22 years since the Choice on Termination of Pregnancy Act (CToPA) was enacted. Many women still die from unsafe abortions due to lack of access to information and services related to abortion.
Bhekisisa Center for Health Journalism, in partnership with Global Heath Strategies, have developed these useful inforgraphics that can be accessedin 6 South African Official Languages. The infographics summarise the CToPA and provide easy to understand comprehensive information on accessing abortion in South Africa.
