The magnitude and severity of abortion-related complications in the Castors Maternity in Bangui, Central African Republic

This eight-page brief outlines selected findings from a research project on the burden of abortion-related complications and their contributing factors in the Maternity of Castors in Bangui, Central African Republic. The study found a greater severity of abortion-related complications in this facility compared to African hospitals in stable settings and reinforces the need to recognize abortion as a serious health issue among fragile or crisis-affected populations.

Cette note présente les résultats sélectionnés d’un projet de recherche sur le fardeau des complications liées à l’avortement et leurs facteurs contributifs dans la maternité des roulettes à Bangui, en République centrafricaine. L’étude a révélé une plus grande gravité des complications liées à l’avortement dans cet établissement que dans les hôpitaux africains situés dans des contextes stables et renforce la nécessité de reconnaître l’avortement comme un problème de santé grave parmi les populations fragiles ou touchées par une crise.
