Interest groups

The board of FIAPAC  analysed the organization: what do we mean, what can we mean – what do we do, what can we do. One of the results was the idea of founding a few ‘interest groups’.

These groups, led by board members (but every FIAPAC member can join), works specifically around one theme. This can be either short- or long-term. The goal for some of these groups is still quite open and will be specified more in the next months.

At present we have the following interest groups:

Lobbying in Europe

Aim:  to place  womens right for safe abortion in Europe on the agenda at the Commission for Reproductive Health and Women’s Affairs in Brussels.

FIAPAC Funding

Aim: to approach potential funders - to whole or part fund FIAPAC or joint FIAPAC/funder project to improve safe abortion and post abortion care in Eastern Europe.

How to evaluate the congress

Aim: to increase the input/feedback from participants of the conference, so that we can adjust things where needed.

Mid-trimester provision

Aims:

- to define minimun standards for both methods (surgical and medical)

- to keep knowledge of surgical techniques for back-up

- to promote modern medical abortion

- to initiate a welcome schedule for patients who need to travel for second trimester abortion care

- methods of pain relief

Venues for next conferences

Aim: to have advance planning of  most suitable venues for future conferences.

Ethical issues

Conscientious objection
