Roe upholds abortion in very different ways around the country. Without it, the fallout would be highly uneven, according to new research by scholars at Middlebury College and two reproductive health research groups.
New research from the Shamba Maisha study, supported by the National Institutes of Health, explored how a livelihood program impacted perceived mental health among people living with HIV in Migori County, Kenya.
Previous research on the impact of the Hyde Amendment found that about one quarter of women who would have had abortions instead gave birth when Medicaid does not cover abortion. A new ANSIRH study investigated whether that estimate is still relevant.
The Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health cosponsored an event bringing together national and UCSF leaders on reproductive health and justice to discuss how our community should respond to increasingly extreme abortion restrictions sweeping the country.
On June 27, Bixby experts testified at the inaugural hearing of the California Assembly's Select Committee on Women's Reproductive Health. The committee, chaired by Assemblymember Rebecca Bauer-Kahan, is the first of its kind in the nation. The first panel set the stage for the conversation, focusing on the landscape for reproductive health in California and gaps that the legislature should address.
There is very little data about HIV in the Middle East to begin with, and funding and attention dedicated to eradicating the epidemic often ignores trans women. Dr. Rachel L. Kaplan is out to change that.
ANSIRH found that the physical health of women who have a first or second trimester abortion is no worse than those who gave birth. Instead, across several measures of chronic pain and overall self-rated health, women who give birth after being denied a wanted abortion fare worse than women who receive a wanted abortion.
Transgender women’s risk factors are particularly understudied and invisible in the Middle East and North Africa, and effective and culturally appropriate support is urgently needed. Rachel Kaplan and colleagues aim to address this gap with the first ever study to tackle HIV prevention among transgender women in Lebanon.
