RRAAM was formed
on the 2nd of February 2007 by a collective of 12 organisations and individuals, as an effort to increase and improve access to sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR).
We work to increase
awareness of and access to these rights among women, health providers, NGOs, policy makers, the media and the public through the strategies of information, education and evidence based advocacy. Women’s access to contraceptive and abortion services is a public health, women’s human rights and reproductive rights issue. Long term enhancement of women’s health has significant benefits for economic growth and national development.
as a grassroots operation throughout Malaysia, working directly with communities to encourage women and girls to have greater bodily autonomy. Our network of activists and doctors are working to provide women friendly services and to ensure greater access to affordable care for women, whilst continuing to advocate for better, more inclusive and comprehensive health policy by maintaining a direct, and active, line of communication with the Ministry of Health and the Malaysian Medical Association.
We remain connected to you through the RRAAM Hotline. It is a free consultation service, run by our panel of counsellors, to provide information on safe, affordable and women friendly medical and surgical abortion services and contraceptive methods available to you.
