Provision of safe abortion care services to women who suffered from complications of unsafe induced abortion and who received care in these public hospitals would only have cost US$2,694, with potential savings of US$19,778 in that year.
The treatment of the complications of abortion consumes a significant proportion of the two public hospitals’ resources in Burkina Faso. Safe abortion care services may represent a cost-beneficial alternative, as it may have saved USD 19,778.53 in 2010.
L’une des recommandations majeures issues de la 117e Session du Comité des droits de l’Homme de l’ONU tenue à Genève et publiées ce 15 juillet 2016, concerne les interruptions volontaires de grossesse et accès aux moyens de contraception au Burkina.
(One of the most important recommendations of the 117th Session of the UN Human Rights Committee in Geneva, published 15 July 2016, concerned abortion and access to the means of contraception in Burkina Faso.)
In 2015, Pathfinder undertook a cross-country stakeholder analysis to identify key characteristics of strategies adopted to advance abortion rights and access, focusing on four countries – Mozambique, Burkina Faso, Tanzania, and Democratic Republic of Congo – in which they and their partners have collaborated toward this end. This technical brief explores key themes from these four countries, each representing differing profiles of legal and social abortion restrictiveness.
