KAMPALA - Uganda is participating in cross-country studies on abortion and post-abortion care in Africa and Asia. Researchers seek to find out women’s knowledge of abortion methods and sources, the incidence of induced abortion, how women terminate pregnancies, and the extent of unsafe abortion.
In addition to direct questions on abortion, the female survey module includes questions about the respondents’ two closest friends and their experiences with abortion.
