Consortium for Research
On Unsafe Abortion in Africa

The purpose of this website is to be a place for researchers interested in abortion issues in Africa to share resources such as study designs and instruments, bibliographies and reports.

The overarching goals of the Consortium are to: 1. improve understanding of the prevalence, causes and consequences of unwanted pregnancy and unsafe abortion; 2. provide evidence to support actions to reduce unwanted pregnancy and unsafe abortion; and 3. increase women’s access to high quality, comprehensive, safe abortion care, within the limits of the law, and post-abortion care. The Consortium will foster high-quality policy and program-relevant research on unwanted pregnancy and abortion in selected countries, disseminate scientific findings broadly, support capacity building, and build a network of researchers to facilitate sharing of skills and information.
