Ahead of World Contraception Day (September 26th) Marie Stopes International (MSI) is launching Time to Act: Achieving a world where no woman dies from unsafe abortion to coincide with the UNGA’s deliberations on the 1994 Cairo agenda and the post-2015 goals. A copy of the report is available here: http://www.makewomenmatter.org/timetoact.
Part of MSI’s Make Women Matter campaign, the report brings to light the damage being caused by the unmet need for contraception and unsafe abortions and warns how much worse the situation is yet to become as the developing world faces its biggest population growth in history.
