The African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC) in Nairobi, Kenya, conducts policy-relevant research on population and health issues facing sub-Saharan Africa. This grant will support a research portfolio that studies various aspects of unsafe abortion and the provision of safe abortion services in Kenya. This research will build on APHRC’s recent studies on the magnitude of unsafe abortion in Kenya and the costs to the health care system associated with complications from unsafe abortion. This research portfolio will contribute evidence needed to support policy advocacy to implement and operationalize Kenya’s relatively liberal abortion regulations.

Grants to this Grantee
for enhancing the African Population and Health Research Center impact evaluation capacity
The African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC) is committed to generating Africa-led and African-owned evidence to inform decision making. The center’s mandate is to generate and support the use of evidence for meaningful action to improve the lives of all Africans. This grant will enable APHRC to strengthen its capacity to conduct impact evaluations across several sectors, such as education, nutrition, and health.
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.
