Abortion Access through Technological Innovation

By Anakaren Perales | Project leader

At Ipas Latin America and the Caribbean (Ipas LAC), we work to ensure that women and all people who can get pregnant have the correct information, feel supported in their decisions, and have the confidence to access safe abortion and contraceptive services when they need them.

We have designed and tested a series of digital innovations. These include “Sofia,” our Safe Abortion Chatbot, a Chatbot for migrants experiencing sexual violence, a series of videos on Safe Abortion with misoprostol, and an Interactive Abortion Map to guide women to safe abortion services. We have also developed tailored websites with contextualized information in several Mexican states where abortion has been decriminalized. These updated sources of factual, rights-based sexual information complement our decades of work with public health systems in the region and abortion accompaniment networks that help women and girls realize their reproductive rights.

Through our efforts, we ensure that all people have the tools and support they need to exercise their reproductive rights and reach their full potential. To achieve these results, we target our actions using our innovative technologies. Some of our key results include the following:

  • Our safe abortion chatbot, "Sofia," has recorded 21,383 conversations and 24,320 interactions across five countries. The most consulted topics in the chatbot were medical abortion, with 7,885 interactions, and the use of mifepristone and misoprostol, with 6,946 interactions.
  • The Interactive Map of Abortion in Latin America and the Caribbean reached 39,723 people and received 66,188 visits. This tool provides verified and easy-to-understand information on the legal status of abortion in the region. It is supported by 56 organizations in the region that can provide additional information on abortion in their respective territories.
  • In its first month of launch, our chatbot on sexual violence and safe abortion for migrants reached 3,360 users and recorded 908 conversations.
  • We reached 1,940 health professionals on our e-learning platform, primarily from Argentina, Colombia, and Mexico.
  • We disseminated tools to improve the quality and availability of abortion and post-abortion care to 17,804 health professionals.
  • Our websites on safe and legal abortion in Baja California, Colima, Hidalgo, and Veracruz have received a total of 31,994 visits from 19,377 users.
  • Our YouTube video on safe abortion with misoprostol has received 4,568,056 views. 74% of the viewers are women aged 18-34.
