The study will describe and estimate the burden of all post-abortion complications, particularly severe complications, near-miss complications and deaths, and factors associated with severe morbidity among women admitted for post-abortion care (PAC) in four Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) facilities in Africa.

Expected Outcomes

The research is expected to generate evidence highlighting the magnitude and severity of abortion-related complications and will provide extensive details on the trajectories that led women to experience severe and near-miss abortion-related complications in four African humanitarian settings. The research will highlight the challenges and barriers to health care experienced by women seeking PAC in these settings.
