March 12, 2015 | Publication | Population & Reproductive Health

Over the past decade, key policy developments have contributed to improved availability, accessibility, and safety of induced abortion services in India, according to a report from the Guttmacher Institute. The MacArthur-supported report reviews and synthesizes literature on abortion in India, with the intent of filling a major gap in the evidence base on maternal and reproductive health in the country. The report discusses the barriers to safe and legal abortion services that women in India face, as well as the programmatic and policy implication of the findings.
