Country Consultant - USA

Women First Digital

Seattle, WA (Nationwide)

JOB DESCRIPTION
Position: Country Consultant - USA
Location: Remote, but based in the United States (US)
Contract Term: 6 months with the possibility of extension
Salary: USD 1,500 per month. This is a part-time role at 30 hours per week.

The US is facing unprecedented threats to abortion access. Several states have signed abortion
access bans into law that restrict coverage, defund reproductive healthcare providers, and
place inhibitory requirements on abortion seekers.

Existing abortion care providers and helplines are overwhelmed with clients, and the spread of
misinformation, particularly through social media, is rampant. As US abortion seekers search for
information, support and guidance, the internet will often be their first entry point.

Women First Digital (WFD) is an eHealth social enterprise that operates two safe abortion
websites: howtouseabortionpill.org (HowToUse) and safe2choose.org (safe2choose). At WFD,
we believe in leveraging the power digital solutions to ensure that all people, regardless of
where they live, have access to inclusive, comprehensive, and quality abortion information and
care.

Key features of each website include:

1. HowToUse
• Simple, de-medicalized and step-by-step information on medical abortion up to 13 weeks, including what to consider before, during and after.
• Country profiles offering a summarized overview of the abortion landscape in a particular country including service availability, costs, and local resources.
• A safe abortion chatbot that abortion seekers can access via the website, Facebook and on WhatsApp.
• Medical abortion eLearning course for all levels of health care providers.
• A robust social media presence across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Tik Tok and Pinterest.

2. safe2choose
• Comprehensive and easy-to-understand information on both medical and in-
clinic abortions up to 13 weeks. 
• Live chat counselling and referral services. Counsellors provide real-time guidance and support to abortion seekers and offer referrals to trusted on-the-ground providers.
• A secure abortion provider database with unique geo-location features.
• A comprehensive FAQ section and list of abortion pill brands by country.
• A robust social media presence across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Tik Tok and Pinterest.

safe2choose websites and their related products. The scope of work is inclusive of, but not
limited to:
