The International Network for the Reduction of Abortion Discrimination and Stigma or inroads is a global network of advocates, scholars, health providers, and donors engaged in program design, research, and advocacy to address abortion stigma and its negative outcomes.
This website serves as a tool for an engaged global community to share knowledge, skills, tools and resources in order to integrate, monitor, and evaluate abortion stigma work across members’ research and programmatic activities. Inroads, through a community of practice, aims to build the evidence and practice around abortion stigma and contribute to a movement that can analyze, respond to and act against abortion stigma.
The inroads network is supported by a steering committee and staff committed to four pillars of strategic work; inroads exists to:
- Gather and Connect
- Center Abortion Stigma
- Facilitate the Generation and Use of Evidence
- Catalyze and Support Capacity Strengthening.
The International Network for the Reduction of Abortion Discrimination and Stigma is committed to establishing an active and vibrant community of practice based on values of respect for personal agency, reproductive justice, and transparency .
