Sustaining GEMMA's Legacy

The Global Elimination of Maternal Mortality from Unsafe Abortion (GEMMA) Fund

Every year 25 million unsafe abortions occur worldwide, contributing to approximately 13% of maternal deaths. To encourage scholarship in the field of abortion, Dr. Roger and Susan Rochat of the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University (RSPH) established the endowed GEMMA fund. The GEMMA Fund is dedicated to preserving the GEMMA Seminar at Rollins and advancing GEMMA’s mission worldwide. The GEMMA Seminar, taught each spring at Rollins, trains an ever-growing community of young professionals from diverse backgrounds who are called to advance the field of sexual and reproductive health through research, education, and collaboration.  

The Impact of Your Gift 

We invite you to further GEMMA’s legacy by making a gift to the endowed GEMMA fund. Dr. Roger Rochat has personally committed to matching $1,000 of gifts made to this campaign, so let’s reach our $1,000 goal to maximize this match opportunity! Your donations are critical and needed now more than ever. Gifts of any size will count towards our campaign goal and will bring us one step closer to achieving the mission of eliminating maternal mortality from unsafe abortion.
