The Net Effect research project will examine the impact of reproductive health policy changes in six states over five years. The study will include monitoring service delivery networks, tracking publicly funded services, quantifying changes in health centers, examining staff experiences, and tracking reproductive health indicators. Guttmacher will also conduct longitudinal studies to document the experiences of women most impacted by policy changes. Study findings will be used by researchers, advocates, and policymakers to protect and improve access to reproductive health care.

for documenting the cost of unsafe abortion in Rwanda
Guttmacher Institute, Inc. (New York, NY) - Project, New, $200,000 over 1 year; 67% of project budget for support of documenting the cost of unsafe abortion in Rwanda
for general operating support
A leading voice in the field of sexual and reproductive health for more than forty years, the Guttmacher Institute has earned a strong reputation for its unbiased scientific inquiry and evidence-based approach. It provides a steady stream of essential, policy-relevant information on key issues relating to reproductive and sexual health and is routinely cited by policymakers, government agencies, health professionals, the media, and other advocacy organizations. This grant would help enable Guttmacher to continue its work to build the evidence needed to drive policy changes to promote sexual and reproductive health and carry out an interrelated program of social science research, policy analysis, and public education.
for translation of the Rwanda monograph on abortion into French
For more than forty years, the Guttmacher Institute has led the field in research on the incidence, cause and consequences of unsafe abortion. In 2009, the Hewlett Foundation supported the first national study of the incidence of abortion and health consequences of unsafe abortion in Rwanda. Funds will enable Guttmacher to publish a French language version of the monograph on abortion and unintended pregnancy in Rwanda and disseminate the report along with other project materials to key stakeholders, including policymakers, the Ministry of Health, NGOs, health providers, donors, and the media.
