Suyash Khubchandani

India

As a medical student, Suyash saw there was a gap in the medical curriculum with the over-medicalization of sexual and reproductive health and the information needed for abortion providers to offer realistic, compassionate care for their patients. Suyash then cofounded India Safe Abortion Youth Advocates, a network of medical students working to promote women’s right to safe abortion. Suyash is also involved with Asia Safe Abortion Partnership (ASAP) and is working to establish an increasingly broader and deeper network of gender-aware young doctors.
