2011–2012 Uganda Post-Abortion Care Costing Study

The Uganda Post-Abortion Care Costing Study includes data on 1,338 women who received postabortion care at health facilities across Uganda in 2011­–2012. Data were collected from the women themselves, each patient’s principal postabortion care provider and the Ministry of Health. The dataset includes information on women’s individual and household socioeconomic characteristics and the type and cost of treatment they received, as well as how their abortion complications affected children in the household, productivity (of the respondent and other household members) and economic circumstances.
