Mphatso contraception

This animation is the result of a collaboration between IPAS, PositiveNegatives and the London School of Economics sharing research results of the MRC/FCDO-funded research project, “Improving adolescent access to contraception and abortion-related care” led by Professor Ernestina Coast. The story is for the research partners and adolescents themselves, who shared their experiences of safe and unsafe abortion care-seeking with the research team.
