Costs and consequences of abortions to women and their households: a cross-sectional study in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.

Ilboudo PG, Greco G, Sundby J, Torsvik G - Health Policy Plan (2014)

Bottom Line: We found that women with induced abortion were often single or never married, younger, more educated and had earlier pregnancies than women with spontaneous abortion.The results also suggested that payments associated with induced abortion were catastrophic as they consumed 15% of the gross domestic product per capita.Additionally, 11-16% of total households appeared to have resorted to coping strategies in order to face costs.
