About ZAGO

To reduce cases of unsafe abortions that are contributing 7% to maternal deaths

ZAGO is confident that the implementation of our strategic plan will contribute towards increasing access to integrated reproductive health and family planning services and thereby, help reduce maternal morbidity and mortality. We also believe that this plan will contribute towards prevention and treatment of other health challenges that our women and adolescent girls face such as the emerging conditions of NCDs and gynecological cancers.
