African Population and Health Research Center, Inc.

For An Unsafe Abortion Costing Study In Kenya

Overview
The African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC) in Nairobi, Kenya, conducts policy-relevant research on population and health issues facing sub-Saharan Africa. Earlier this year, in collaboration with two other Foundation grantees, APHRC released results from a nationwide study on the extent of unsafe abortion in Kenya. Based on findings of a relatively high prevalence of unsafe abortion, the study showed the urgent need for concerted efforts in Kenya to promote women’s access to quality reproductive health services—thereby decreasing abortion-related morbidity and mortality. This grant would support a study that will assess the financial costs of the incidence of unsafe abortion to Kenya’s health system, providing additional evidence needed to support policy advocacy and political engagement, as well as grounds for legal and policy reform in Kenya.
