NAF is the professional association of abortion providers in North America. Our work supports the dedicated heath care professionals who make reproductive choice a reality, as well as the women they serve.
NAF sets the standard for quality abortion care through our evidence-based Clinical Policy Guidelines. We also provide our members with the education and professional support they need to provide the highest quality abortion care.
NAF provides the medical, provider, and patient perspectives in debates about abortion policies. We also challenge abortion restrictions at the provincial and federal levels.
NAF provides women with the resources they need to make informed decisions about their pregnancies. The NAF Hotline is the only toll-free source of information about abortion and referrals to providers of quality care in Canada.
NAF members care for more than 80% the women who choose abortion each year in Canada.
Vicki Saporta, President and CEO
NAF was established in 1977 as the professional association of abortion providers. NAF has had Canadian members since the 1980s. Recognizing the unique needs of these members, NAF launched our Canadian Public Policy and Outreach Program in 2006. Since then we have seen an increase in our Canadian membership and have been actively advocating for our providers.
In 2007, NAF Canada incorporated as a non-profit organization in Canada.
