Executive Director, MABIA-Ghana

Ghana ยท Class of 2020

John Lazame Tindanbil is a trained nurse and a public health practitioner working to provide quality reproductive healthcare, including safe abortion services, across Ghana. Through MABIA-Ghana, John provides sexual and reproductive health and rights education to women and girls and ensures that two midwifery training colleges teach new midwives to perform safe abortion services. As a clinical nurse, John witnessed many young girls dying from unsafe abortions and quickly realized the need for change. More education and more services were needed to reduce gender discrimination in Ghana. Today, John leads MABIA-Ghana to do just that and hopes to continue to improve the quality of life of the people in his community.
