CONCEPT AND RATIONALE BEHIND THE TRIBUNAL • Situation of abortion in Kenya: leading to the birth of RHRA and the abortion rights tribunal. • Organizing the tribunal: – Significance of the day - June 26; – Structure of the tribunal; – The testifiers; – The judges; – The verdict.

FINDINGS OF THE TIRBUNAL • Abortion has gone underground and become unsafe and unaffordable; • Kenya’s archaic laws continue to have a negative health consequences for women; • Kenyan abortion law and practice violate standards set by international treaties and treaty bodies.

THE FUTURE • The ‘new’ advocacy tool: voice of the survivors of backstreet abortions; • The rejuvenated voice of the opposition; • Entrance of mainstream human rights organizations and the impact on the campaign; • The future: effect of the tribunal on the environment.

Thank You!!!
