Date: Tuesday, 24 May 2016
Location: Oxfam Novib, The Hagu

Share-Net International and Oxfam Novib are happy to invite you for a presentation followed by an interactive session with the Guttmacher Institute on the 24th of May 2016 at the office of Oxfam Novib in The Hague.

The Guttmacher Institute will present findings from two major studies being released in May. The first features evidence on the incidence of abortion worldwide, which is forthcoming in The Lancet. This study, led by Guttmacher in collaboration with the World Health Organization, estimates the number of abortions and the abortion rate for each region and sub-region of the world, and documents global trends in abortion over the period 1990-2014. To complement these global findings, Guttmacher staff will also present data from recent country-level studies on abortion. Next, Guttmacher will present new data on the costs and benefits of meeting adolescents’ need for modern contraception across the Global South—the latest in the Institute’s series of Adding It Up reports.

Susheela Singh, Guttmacher’s Vice President for Research, will present the key findings, and Ann Starrs, President and CEO of the Institute, will discuss the implications of the research for policies and programs.

Please do forward this invite to relevant colleagues!
