Second-trimester abortion: Current practices and barriers to service in Ethiopia

This research report on second-trimester abortion in Ethiopia—which has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the world—explores the factors causing women to delay abortion care until the second trimester, thereby facing greater risks of medical complications. The research entailed interviews with more than two dozen women about their abortion experiences, interviews with 512 providers working in randomly selected hospitals and health centers, and facility assessments of the equipment, drugs, and abortion care guidelines in use at 29 hospitals. Based on this data, the report proposes specific recommendations to decrease the need for second-trimester abortion.
Elaborados después de una  investigación realizada con jóvenes en la Ciudad de México y en Tlaxcala, Atrévete a pensar diferente es una serie de tres historietas —Embarazo, Anticonceptivos, y Relaciones afectivas—que ofrecen información a jóvenes de cómo prevenir un embarazo, cómo utilizar y negociar el uso anticonceptivos y cómo mantener un relación afectiva con equidad de género. Las historietas invitan a las y los jóvenes a pensar diferente sobre su sexualidad, su salud y sus derechos.
