Innovation Description

Every year about 44 million abortions take place worldwide. Roughly half of these abortions occur in legally restricted settings and are unsafe. As a result, unsafe abortion is a major contributor to maternal mortality and morbidity. Tens of thousands of women die and millions more suffer disabilities from unsafe abortion each year; women in the Global South, and in particular women in low-resource and conflict-affected settings, are the ones who bear the burden of this global health inequity.
