Dr. Joseph Babigumira’s Research Featured in Population Reference Bureau Research Brief

A Research Brief published by the Population Reference Bureau in September, 2012 featured research from Global Medicines Program faculty Joseph Babigumira. The Brief described key findings from two studies by Dr. Babigumira and colleagues on the cost of inducted abortion and cost-effectiveness of universal access to modern contraception:

Joseph B. Babigumira et al., “Estimating the Costs of Induced Abortion in
Uganda: A Model-Based Analysis,” BMC Public Health 11, no. 1 (2011): 904.

Joseph B. Babigumira et al., “Potential Cost-Effectiveness of Universal Access to
Modern Contraceptives in Uganda,” PloS one 7, no. 2 (2012): 1-9.

The Population Reference Bureau INFORMS people around the world about population, health, and the environment, and EMPOWERS them to use that information to ADVANCE the well-being of current and future generations.

Brief reports such as this are essential for informing policy makers of critical research and scientific results, helping to ensure that data and evidence are translated into policy and practice.
