A new report by the Lancet says almost 4.3 billion of reproductive age around the world will not get access to any adequate reproductive health services in all the years they are able to reproduce.
According to the study, some 200 million women worldwide in developing regions who want to avoid pregnancy are unable to use any modern contraception.
Without adequate services, up to 25 million unsafe abortions take place every year.
