Lagos state releases policy document on Abortions

 

The Lagos State Government through the Ministry of Health has released a policy document for the development of safe and lawful abortion services within the ambit of the state’s criminal law.

 

The 40-page policy document, titled “Lagos State Guidelines on Safe Termination of Pregnancy for Legal Indications”, sets out guidelines for safe termination of pregnancy within the confines of Lagos state’s criminal law.

 

Dr Olusegun Ogboye, Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Ministry of Health, noted that the document was to provide evidence-based data and information for health workers in public and private sectors with requisite skills to provide safe termination of pregnancy in order to reduce preventable deaths.

 

Ogboye explained that the process to develop the guidelines commenced in 2018 with the ‘Safe Engage project’ led by the Lagos Ministry of Health and hosted by the Society for Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Nigeria, with support from the Population Reference Bureau.

 

He pointed out that the advocacy messages on the Safe Engage project focused on two immediate outcomes including ensuring that safe abortion services were available within legal indications in Lagos and domesticating the Violence Against Persons Prohibition Act, supporting women to terminate a pregnancy caused by rape or incest.

 

He went on to say that the process for National guidelines adaptation included technical meetings to discuss sections of the law supporting safe abortion and conditions permitted within the legal framework to save the lives and the physical health of mothers; and validation meetings with the broader stakeholders to review the document.
