Women Help Women

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki



Women Help Women (WHW) is an international non-profit organization that provides information and access to medical abortion and contraception online. Women Help Women supports a network of over 30 other organizations worldwide (e.g. international networks, safe abortion hotlines) on projects described as activism to advance information and access to sexual and reproductive health, and rights and reproductive justice.

WHW is headquartered in the Netherlands.  The WHW website is womenhelp.org.

Women Help Women provides:

  • An online medical consultation to access medical abortion with the pills mifepristone and misoprostol as well as contraceptives: oral contraceptive pills, emergency contraception, male condoms, and other contraceptives to women in countries with restricted access to these health products.
  • Information and education about contraception, emergency contraception, and medical abortion. WHW’s educational materials are based on publications of the World Health Organization.[1]

History[edit]
