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.
