Ipas is an international, non-governmental organisation that increases access to safe abortions and contraception
The Country Director of Ipas, Mr Lucky Palmer, on Monday promised to partner with the National Council of Women Societies (NCWS) Nigeria to remove all forms of barriers affecting women.
Palmer made the promise when the newly elected President of NCWS, Hajiya Lami Lau, led a delegation on a visit to Ipas office in Abuja.
While congratulating the new executive, Palmer pledged commitment to work with NCWS, adding that Ipas was all about rights of women.
On the issue of abortion, Palmer said the law does not permit abortion, adding that a lot of women are dying as a result of unsafe abortion.
Lau urged the Ipas country director to consider the council in trainings, advocacies and programmes to further strengthen the partnership capacity.
