The board of FIAPAC analyzed 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), work 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 women's right to safe abortion in Europe on the agenda at the Commission for Reproductive Health and Women’s Affairs in Brussels.
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.
- to define minimum 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 advanced planning of the most suitable venues for future conferences.
