The fourth roundtable for our State of the Globe Report: A Women’s Health Agenda will focus on abortion. The WHO estimates that 25 million unsafe abortions take place every year – 45 percent of all abortions. The primary methods for preventing unsafe abortion relate to less restrictive abortion laws and greater contraceptive use, yet these methods face huge social and political obstacles, especially in developing nations. How can we ensure both women and healthcare providers are educated about the options and availability of abortion, as well ensuring access is cheap, safe and legal?
