CAC Conclave

The first CAC Conclave was held in New Delhi on June 27 and 28, 2016. In collaboration with the International Institute of Population Sciences, Human Rights Law Network, the YP Foundation, CAC Connect and others, Ipas Development Foundation (IDF) brought together advocates, service providers, lawyers and researchers working to increase access to safe abortion services and other related fields, along with established experts to enable sharing of experiences and leveraging of synergies.


The CAC Conclave was based on the following themes:

  1. Young Women
  2. Abortion and Technology
  3. Abortion and Law
  4. Abortion and Research
  5. Abortion in Media


CAC Conclave aims to provide a national platform for a new generation of voices and to bring together an expanded community of advocates for comprehensive abortion care (CAC) in India. Through the CAC Conclave, we seek to engage with an expanded group of academicians, NGOs, researchers, lawyers, service providers etc. and expand the discourse on the subject which is limited to a small group of individuals and organizations.
