Title: Unsafe abortion - the current global scenario
Author: Faundes, A
Abstract: Unsafe abortion is prevalent in many developing countries, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America and South and Southeast Asia, where abortion laws ale mole restrictive, the unmet need for contraception high and the status of women in society low The main interventions for reducing the prevalence of unsafe abortion are known better and more widely available family planning services, comprehensive sex education, improved access to safe abortion and high-quality post-abortion care, including contraceptive counselling and on-site services Although these proposals have been included in statements and recommendations drawn up at several international conferences and adopted by the vast majority of nations, they have either been inadequately implemented or not implemented at all in the countries in which the need is greatest A well-coordinated effort by both national and international organisations and agencies is required to put these recommendations into practice, however, the most important factor determining the success of such efforts is the commitment of governments towards preventing unsafe abortion and reducing its prevalence and consequences (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd All rights reserved
