REDAAS - Access to Safe Abortion Network

About us

REDAAS is a network of health and legal professionals associated with public and community health services in Argentina. Our commitment is to accompany and assist women in situations of legal abortion, understanding it as part of our professional, ethical and legal duty. Our goal is to promote the implementation of Law 27.610 on Access to Voluntary Termination of Pregnancy and promote access to legal abortions, to help eliminate institutional and political barriers to access safe and legal abortions and build a community to share information, exchange experiences and offer a space of solidarity, encouragement and political support.

The creation of this network started in 2011 as an initiative of the Health, Economy and Society Area of CEDES - Centro de Estudios de Estado y Sociedad - and was institutionalized under the name of REDAAS in 2014, in a joint construction with ELA - Equipo Latinoamericano de Justicia y Género.

Since the beginning, REDAAS has counted with the collaboration of many people, and national and international organizations such as: Fundación para Estudio e Investigación de la Mujer (FEIM), Amnesty International Argentina (AIA), Asociación de los Derechos Civiles (ADC), Consorcio Latinoamericano Contra el Aborto Inseguro (CLACAI), National Abortion Federation (NAF), Safe Abortion Action Fund (SAAF), International Women’s Health Coalition (IWHC) and IPAS.

In present day, REDAAS has more than 300 members from 14 different professions distributed in 20 provinces of Argentina.
