Global Abortion Policies Database

WHO/HRP and the Population Division of the UN Department of Social and Economic Affairs launched the Global Abortion Policies Database this morning at the 30th annual meeting of the HRP Policy and Coordination Committee meeting.

The main objectives of the database are to promote greater transparency of abortion laws and policies and State accountability for the protection of women and girls’ health and human rights. It includes information on abortion laws, policies, health standards and guidelines as stated in the source documents, with notes that provide details on unique policy nuances. The database also includes country-specific SRH indicators.
