Abstract

Around 43 million abortions are carried out globally each year, 22 million of which are unsafe and mostly confined to developing countries. The latter cause 47,000 unnecessary deaths as well as serious health issues for another five million women. LSE researchers are bringing this to the world’s attention with a major fieldwork project in Zambia.
