The incidence of induced abortion in Malawi.
TLDR
Interventions are needed to help women and couples avoid unwanted pregnancy, reduce the need for unsafe abortion and decrease maternal mortality in Malawi.
Incidence of induced abortion by age and state, Mexico, 2009: new estimates using a modified methodology.
TLDR
Extension of the Abortion Incidence Complications Method to obtain state- and age-specific data is feasible, and Age-specific abortion rates peaked among women aged 20-24 and then steadily declined with age.
Incidence of Induced Abortion and Post-Abortion Care in Tanzania
TLDR
The first ever estimates of the incidence of unsafe abortion in Tanzania are provided, at the national level and for each of the 8 geopolitical zones, using the Abortion Incidence Complications Methodology.
Estimates of the incidence of induced abortion and consequences of unsafe abortion in Senegal.
TLDR
Reducing the barriers to effective contraceptive use and ensuring access to postabortion care without the risk of legal consequences may reduce the incidence of and complications from unsafe abortion in Senegal.
The Estimated Incidence of Induced Abortion in Ethiopia, 2014: Changes in the Provision of Services Since 2008.
TLDR
The increases in the number of women obtaining legal abortions and postabortion care are consistent with improvements in women's access to health care, but a substantial number of abortions continue to occur outside of health facilities, a reality that must be addressed.
Abortion incidence in Cambodia, 2005 and 2010
TLDR
This research quantifies an increase in safely induced abortions in Cambodia and provides a deeper understanding of induced abortion trends in Cambodia.
Fundamental discrepancies in abortion estimates and abortion-related mortality: A reevaluation of recent studies in Mexico with special reference to the International Classification of Diseases
TLDR
This article reexamines recent reports estimating the number of induced abortions and abortion-related mortality in Mexico, with special reference to the International Classification of Diseases (ICD), and finds significant overestimations of abortion figures in the Federal District of Mexico.

Estimates of induced abortion in Mexico: what's changed between 1990 and 2006?
TLDR
Clandestine abortion continues to negatively affect women's health in Mexico, and recommended responses include broadening the legal criteria for abortion throughout Mexico, improving contraceptive and postabortion services, and expanding training in the provision of safe abortion.
The incidence of induced abortion in the Philippines: current level and recent trends.
TLDR
The increase in the level of induced abortion seen in some areas may reflect the difficulties women experience in obtaining modern contraceptives as a result of social and political constraints that affect health care provision.
The incidence of abortion worldwide.
TLDR
Accurate measurement of induced abortion levels has proven difficult in many parts of the world, and developed and developing countries can have low abortion rates while most countries have moderate to high abortion rates, reflecting lower prevalence and effectiveness of contraceptive use.
Trends of abortion complications in a transition of abortion law revisions in Ethiopia.
TLDR
The severity of abortion complications and the case fatality rate increased during the transition of legal revision in Ethiopia, but the overall and abortion-related maternal mortality ratios showed a non-statistically significant downward trend.
The estimated incidence of induced abortion in Ethiopia, 2008.
TLDR
Unsafe abortion is still common and exacts a heavy toll on women in Ethiopia, and increased access to high-quality contraceptive care and safe abortion services is needed.
The Abortion Incidence Complications Method: a quantitative technique.
TLDR
This chapter describes this indirect approach that builds on the number of women treated in health facilities for abortion complications to estimate the total number of induced abortions and assesses applications of the AICM over the past 20 years in diverse settings.
Measuring the incidence of abortion in countries with liberal laws.
TLDR
The chapter details the importance of using population data to convert numbers of abortions into uniform measures of annual rates (per 1000 women of reproductive age) and ratios (per 100 live births) for cross-country and regional comparisons.
Unintended pregnancy: worldwide levels, trends, and outcomes.
TLDR
The incidence of pregnancy by intention status and outcome at worldwide, regional, and subregional levels for 2008 is estimated, and recent trends since 1995 are assessed.
