Abstract

In June 2017 the UNDP, UNFPA, UNICEF, WHO HRP and US DESA launched a new, open-access Global Abortion Policies Database. See: http://www.srhr.org/abortion-policies or: eas.un.org/gapp. This database contains comprehensive information on the abortion laws, policies, health standards and guidelines for WHO and UN member states.

Comment: We often wonder whether abortion is legal in a particular country abortion, and, if so, under which conditions, etc. Also, women often don't know exactly what their rights are, etc. So this database www.srhr.org/abortion-policies is a great help for health care providers, governments and women.
