Talking to people about safe access to terminations in Tasmania (summary report)

This ground breaking work has led to two new projects currently in development by Women's Health Tasmania: a Good Practice Guide for health and allied health professionals in how to support people accessing abortion care in Tasmania, and a project to help Tasmanians to develop skills in supporting their friends and family who are making pregnancy choices.

At Women’s Health Tasmania we create safe spaces where people can have conversations that change their lives, and their world.
