Evaluating women’s experiences with a referral system for safe and legal abortion care on the Thailand-Burma border
CRHC and ARHZ
Decades of conflict and stalled economic development in Burma have led to mass population displacement. For displaced women along the Thailand-Burma border, access to health services is often limited, unwanted pregnancy is common, and unsafe abortion is a major contributor to maternal death and disability. Our project evaluates Burmese women's experiences using a referral system for obtaining safe and legal abortion care in Chiang Mai, Thailand with the aim of improving services in this region.
