Collecting data on self-managed abortion in humanitarian and fragile settings: A global initiative
“We are delighted to build on our previous collaborative to explore how to capture information about self-managed abortion in fragile and humanitarian settings. We look forward to collaborating with both local partners in five countries and global partners to showcase and support innovative best practices.”Dr Angel M. Foster, University of Ottawa
What are the data problems that this Lab is working to solve?
This initiative will establish recommendations regarding the collection of rigorous, high-quality information about self-managed abortion in fragile and humanitarian settings and work with stakeholders to develop tools to facilitate the uptake of these recommendations. The proposed initiative consists of three phases:
1) Conducting rapid assessments in five countries;
2) Developing recommendations and tools to support uptake and build stakeholder capacity; and
3) Disseminating findings to local and global audiences.
