Media Jobs in South Africa

Ipas works globally so that women and girls have improved sexual and reproductive health and rights through enhanced access to and use of safe abortion and contraceptive care. We believe in a world where every woman and girl has the right and ability to determine her own sexuality and reproductive health.

Project Objectives

Ipas South Africa has partnered with community-based organisations (CBOs) to implement a communications campaign. The CBOs are responsible for implementing the campaign alongside other activities geared towards increased awareness of, confidence in, and utilization of safe abortion services at public facilities by adolescents and young women in Limpopo and Gauteng.

The objectives of the campaign are:

  • To positively situate women and girls’ rights to contraceptive and abortion methods of their choice.
  • To raise awareness on the dangers of unsafe abortion among women and girls.
  • To target state officials in advocating for women and girls’ sexual and reproductive health and rights.

Scope of Work

To complement this work, Ipas South Africa seeks to appoint a Media Consultant to conduct a workshop to equip CBO representatives with media relations skills with the aim of maximizing positive coverage on safe abortion and contraceptive services.
