In the last few years, there has been a surge of demand for online abortion care. It is crucial that online abortion counseling is provided in a safe, informative and compassionate way.
The safe2choose counseling team has extensive experience in providing high quality care to thousands of abortion seekers. The team has thus designed a digital toolkit to build and strengthen skills in providing online abortion care. The toolkit comes as a simple course that covers pertinent topics – abortion stigma, sexual and reproductive health knowledge, digital safety tools, and self-care tools for counselors.
This toolkit is not intended to be a manual on how to use abortion pills, but rather to provide knowledge about skills and resources for abortion care providers.
Key features of this toolkit include:
- A certification upon completion that can be downloaded;
- 30 hours of self-paced content;
- Free and unlimited access from anywhere; and
- Network building with other prochoice providers
By creating and sharing this course widely with our network, safe2choose wants to celebrate, thank and support all dedicated abortion providers and allies worldwide who make abortion services safe and accessible.
