African Population and Health Research Center

For Support Of Research On Quality Of Post-abortion Care Services

This grant will support the African Population and Health Research Center to conduct research on post-abortion care services. Currently, about 90 percent of women of childbearing age in Africa live in countries with restrictive abortion laws in which women resort to unsafe methods that can result in fatalities and severe disabilities. Post-abortion care services, however, are legal in most countries and provide essential treatment for complications from unsafe abortions. The center will collect data on the quality and availability of post-abortion care in Kenya, Nigeria, and Burkina Faso, and use the evidence to advocate for policies that improve quality of services, promote health equity, and scale up effective interventions.
