International: The Safe Abortion Action Fund

Each year, an estimated 19 million women and girls, faced with unintended or unwanted pregnancy, risk the deadly consequences of unsafe abortion.
Nearly 70,000 of these women and girls will die, and hundreds of thousands of others will be left with debilitating and/or lifelong injuries as a result.
Over 96 per cent of these women will come from the world’s poorest nations.

The Safe Abortion Action Fund (SAAF) was established in 2006 to save lives by increasing access to safe abortion services. It is a reserve fund that is distributed, through grants, to non-governmental organizations working in abortion services, operations research and/or advocacy.

The International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) administers SAAF on behalf of civil society groups, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and IPPF Member Associations worldwide.
