Summary

There are 57.5 million migrants in the Americas, and most of them are women and girls. During migration, they are frequently subjected to gender-based violence, which puts them at risk of unintended pregnancy and other health consequences. As a part of this project, we will increase access to abortion along key migration routes in Latin America and the Caribbean by disseminating a ChatBot that will provide information about SRHR and abortion access to migrant women and girls.

Challenge

Women and girls make up a majority of the 57.5 million migrants in the Americas. In Mexico, half of the migrants are women. High rates of gender-based violence in this population occur before and during migration, and barriers to accessing contraception put them at risk of unintended pregnancy and other health consequences. This population has limited access to sexual and reproductive health information and support.

Solution

This virtual assistant provides information on SRHR, including self-managed abortion, to people seeking it in Spanish. This technology works on diverse platforms. We propose adapting our chatbot to include information specifically for migrants on SRHR, gender-based violence (GBV), and where to get support. This initial adaptation will center on Chiapas, Mexico-a state with high rates of post-abortion complications that receives large numbers of migrants.

Long-Term Impact

Our chatbot will help users overcome financial barriers to abortion by informing them that abortion in cases of GBV should be free of charge at Mexico's public health facilities. Our adapted chatbot would not only provide information on safe abortion self-management, but also ensure that migrants know which abortion accompaniment networks can link them to the support and material/financial resources needed to access care (ex. transportation).
