Emailer | September 2019 Edition
We are Pratigya Campaign for Gender Equality and Safe Abortion, a network of 84 individuals and organisations that have been working at the national and state level on issues of women’s empowerment and women’s access to healthcare services. We focus on finding common ground that simultaneously addresses the serious issue of gender biased sex selection while protecting women’s right to access safe abortion. In our first edition, we give you an essence of our areas of work, efforts and its impact.
Our Strategy


Women’s rights, agency and autonomy are core values that drive our advocacy efforts. They are built up on four interlinked strategic elements and thematic areas:
  • Provider Support
  • Media Outreach
  • Legal/Judicial Environment
  • Alliance Building
