Nigeria Records 2.7m Cases of Abortion in 2018, Says Report

A report by Performance Monitoring and Accountability (PMA) 2020, in collaboration with Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, indicates that, over two million cases of abortion occur in Nigeria in 2018, according to the survey conducted between April to May.


The report further disclosed that the highest incidence were among young girls in secondary schools and women in their early 20s.

Suzanne Bell, a scientist at john Hopkins school of public health, while presenting the PMA2020 report yesterday in Abuja, explained that the survey conducted amongst over 11,000 women aged 15- 49 revealed that, Nigeria has witnessed a steady rise in abortion cases with more prevalence in urban centers.

According to her, “The results highlight that abortion is quite common, data collected in 2012 recorded 1.25 million abortions which suggests that there are greater demand for abortion.”


She further explained that more than six out of 10 abortions employed unsafe methods and 11 per cent of women experienced complications, adding that, the unsafe abortion was mostly found among women living in rural areas with no education.

“In urban areas 75.4 cases per 1000 women were recorded while the rural areas had 51.8 cases per 1000 women of which 81 per cent were most likely to have an abortion considered least unsafe.

On abortion methods, she explained that 37 per cent of women indicated they underwent surgery to terminate their pregnancy; seven per cent used abortion pills and the remaining 56 per cent used other unspecified medications or traditional methods for their abortion.


She attributed the rising cases of abortion to the availability of medical abortion pills in chemist stores and a decreased desired fertility among women

She noted that, women now want fewer children, adding that the increased availability of medical abortion drugs at chemists shops has made it more accessible for women to effectively terminate unwanted pregnancy.

She however expressed dissatisfaction with the Post Abortion Care (PAC) services in Nigeria.


According to her, “only 40 per cent of primary facilities provide any PAC services and significantly fewer had PAC signal functions. Only 67 per cent of public secondary facilities had the necessary equipment, medicine and other services. Private facilities were less likely to provide PAC services”

Bell, however, opined that adoption of family planning will help reduce cases of abortion

Similarly, Principal Investigator, PMA2020, Elizabeth Omoluabi, while speaking on the issue of family planning, revealed that, “three out of 10 children in Nigeria are unwanted.”


Omoluabi added that most women still adhere to traditional family planning methods which have remained ineffective.

She however, noted that there has been an increase in the use of modern contraceptive planning methods with a 16.3 to 19 per cent increase among women.

She also called for an increase in family planning education especially amongst poorer women.
