Too many girls and women continue to die and to face both the short and long-term negative consequences of unsafe abortion – yet information is lacking on how health care providers and systems can best provide quality care for girls and women with abortion-related complications.

In recognition of this research gap, HRP, WHO and partners have conducted a research study across 17 countries in the African, Latin American and Caribbean regions, to gather evidence on the provision, experience and quality of care – The WHO and HRP multi-country survey on abortion (MCS-A).
