New report on improving access to safe abortion care

WHO/Europe has just published a report of the meeting held in Riga, Latvia, 30-31 May 2012 which disseminated new WHO recommendations on safe abortion care. It also encouraged participating Member States to act on their responsibility for women’s health in providing adequate health and social measures and respect for human rights.

This publication could serve as an effective process in analysis of technical and legal barriers in improving access to safe abortion care and improving the health of women in the European Region.
