Mozambique: Sweden finances access to contraception and safe abortion
The Swedish Embassy in Maputo announced on Monday that it is providing additional funds of slightly more than a million US dollars to a project on expanding access by women and girls to safe abortion and to contraceptive care in the Mozambican provinces of Nampula and Zambezia.
The project was launched in 2016 with overall funding of over five million dollars. A press release from the embassy says the additional million dollars is intended to extend the projetc, and to rise to the challenge of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The embassy is working in partnership with the Mozambican branch of the international health rights NGO, Ipas.
