YKP Women’s Health Foundation

The Jakarta-based Women’s Health Foundation (Yayasan Kesehatan Perempuan, or YKP) has worked with the government, health workers, and the public to promote women’s health and rights since 2001.

YKP has been working passionately to build support for a national health law which ensures women and girls’ access to comprehensive reproductive healthcare, including access to safe abortion. On September 14, 2009, a new Indonesian Health Law passed that expanded the legal recognition for reproductive health services. Previously, abortion was largely illegal and this law states that abortion can now be provided in some circumstances, including cases of rape or when the life of the woman or her fetus is threatened.
