Grants to this Grantee
for support of research on quality of post-abortion care services
This grant is a supplement to a current grant to the African Population and Health Research Center to conduct research on post-abortion care services, which are legal in most countries and provide essential treatment for complications from unsafe abortions. Due to unforeseen challenges, the grantee has struggled to collect sufficient data in two of its three countries of study, Nigeria and Burkina Faso, resulting in insufficient numbers to achieve significant findings. This supplement will allow them to commission further data collection and conduct additional oversight.
