Duration of Study: 2013 onwards
Principal Investigator: Dr. S. Chhabra
Study Design: Cross-sectional epidemiological study using a pretested tool with some questions closed ended (yes or no) and others open ended
Sample Size: 2500 to 3000 women.
Ethics Approval: Obtained from Institutional Ethics Committee, MGIMS (MGIMS/IEC/ OBGY/42/2013; dated 28/09/2103)

Abortions, spontaneous or induced, are most common adverse outcome of pregnancy. Yet, prevalence and underlying causes are subject to continuing investigation. The reported prevalence of spontaneous abortions is around 10 to 15% of clinically recognized pregnancies and WHO reports that globally approximately 42 million pregnancies are voluntarily terminated each year, 22 million within the legal system and 20 million by unskilled providers or in unhygienic conditions, or both. No wonder in 2008, worldwide 47 000 women died due to unsafe abortions, representing 13% of pregnancy- related deaths. Abortion, whether spontaneous or induced, may be associated with complications that constitute global public health challenge, more so in developing countries because of problem of quality of post-abortion care, women’s willingness to turn to medical services, and readiness of health system to promptly deal with complications.

This study intends to measure the burden and etiology of spontaneous and induced abortions. The study shall also collect data on sex selective abortions, lack of knowledge or use of contraception and the need for induced abortions, post-abortion care in rural tribal women from tribal region with difficult access, lack of infrastructure and scarce health care in Central India.

Study Subjects and Methodology: Every 4th household in villages with women between 15 and 44 years with history of spontaneous or induced abortions or both in last five years will be randomly interviewed. Information regarding women seeking abortion services from medical college, district hospital, sub district hospital, PHC, Sub center and private hospital from both districts will also be collected. Focus group discussions regarding perceptions and common beliefs about abortion with no age bar for participation will also be carried out.
