The Scientific Panel on Abortion of the IUSSP and the Population Council are sponsoring an international seminar on Medication Abortion: Availability and use, and impact on abortion safety and women’s health in Senegal in July 2016. This seminar will provide an opportunity for researchers to present results from new studies on the use of medication abortion. This seminar will cover various topics such as the availability and use of misoprostol, the role misoprostol has in reducing inequities in access to safe abortion services, and much more.
Papers may be country-specific or comparative, quantitative and/or qualitative. This international seminar will bring together demographers, public health researchers, sociologists and anthropologists, as well as scholars from other related disciplines interested in exchanging the latest scientific knowledge on availability, accessibility and use of medication abortion and its impact on abortion safety and women’s health and survival. Additional aims of the seminar are to increase networking between researchers and to facilitate linkages and coordination across disciplines, countries and research institutions.
The IUSSP Scientific Panel on Abortion invites researchers in the field to submit a short 200-word abstract AND an extended abstract (2 to 4 pages, including tables) or a full unpublished paper for consideration before Monday, November 30th, 2015.
