From research to policy: current issues and advances in abortion research in sub-Saharan Africa
When: Wednesday, November 14, 2018
Where: Kigali Conference Centre (AD12), Rwanda
Time: 7:00-8:25 AM
The event is open to all registered conference attendees, as space is limited please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Africa Population Health Research Center (APHRC), Guttmacher Institute, Gynuity Health Projects, Ibis Reproductive Health and Ipas invite you to join us at ICFP for a breakfast discussion and roundtable. The event will focus on how research is critical to drive evidence-based advocacy and policies and inform service delivery improvements, so all women are able to access safe, affordable, high-quality abortion care. Join colleagues who attended the 2016 Africa Regional Conference on Abortion: From Research to Policy in Addis Ababa—as well as others involved in abortion research—for discussion and networking. This interactive session will feature presentations on current topics in abortion research and facilitated small group discussion.
The session is also an opportunity to meet APHRC’s 2018 African Doctoral Dissertation Research Fellows (ADDRF) for Doctoral Research on Abortion. The recipients of these prestigious fellowships are the future researchers who will address the strategic gaps in research capacity and knowledge management to help other researchers, health professionals and policy makers increase their contribution in addressing issues related to abortion.
CNN coverage of Gynuity’s Telabortion study
CNN issued an article reporting on ways to increase access to medical abortion for early pregnancy termination, including Gynuity's own TelAbortion study, which offers medical abortion via telemedicine to women in Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, New York, and Maine. This project is conducted in close collaboration with reproductive health care providers and other women's health advocates working in these states. Learn more about TelAbortion here.
