BACKGROUND Unsafe abortion is a leading cause of maternal mortality. In Afghanistan, which has experienced decades of armed conflict and where abortion is highly restricted, maternal mortality is high at 638 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births. Post-abortion care (PAC) is a lifesaving package of interventions to reduce morbidity and mortality related to induced or spontaneous abortion, but is rarely provided and often of poor quality, particularly in humanitarian settings. In July 2018, we c...

METHODS A cross-sectional study design was applied. Participants were recruited from three departments of oncology in Zanj...

BACKGROUND Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP) affect 5-10% of pregnant women. Long-term health issues for these women include 2-3 times the risk of heart attacks, stroke and diabetes, starting within 10 years after pregnancy, making long-term health after HDP of major public health importance. Recent studies suggest this knowledge is not being transferred sufficiently to women and how best to transmit this information is not known. This study explored women's preferred content, format and...
