About MAMA Network

Mobilizing Activists around Medical Abortion Network ( is a collaboration of grassroots activists and feminist groups based in Sub-Saharan Africa, seeking to expand access to safe self-managed abortion (SMA).

MAMA is a regional movement working to share evidence-based and stigma- free information about self-managed medication abortion and sexual and reproductive health and rights directly with women at the community level. MAMA membership is currently 74 groups in 24 African countries, with plans to deepen our impact and expand our reach over the next years.
We are feminist activists, trained counsellors and researchers based across the African continent who have a strong focus on supporting self-managed abortion, especially in places where abortion is restricted by laws, stigma, and lack of access. MAMA strategies include (a) Hotlines that provide information (b) Community outreach programs (c) Pharmacy and healthcare provider collaboration (d) Advocacy for decriminalisation of abortion and (e) partnerships with feminist groups around the world to support increased access to abortion pills.
To support the successful implementation of our Strategic Goals and Plan, we are building out our coordination team, our networks, internal systems and capacities to take MAMA Network to greater heights.

About the Role

All MAMA Program Coordinators lead the planning, implementation, reporting and improvement of our strategies and programs and contribute to the building and administration of the movement.

You will lead our Access to Knowledge program, which supports our members in disseminating information about Self-Managed Abortion (SMA) and Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) in their countries and communities. The role is responsible for creating and driving creative and effective strategies to meet program goals. You will plan, execute, coordinate, evaluate and report on all activities under this program.

You will use various approaches to build capacity in the MAMA Network members to work towards our goals, including one-on-one support, peer linking and learning, hosting trainings, training of trainers and provision of manuals, curricula and helpful materials.
