H 2 Access denied: Uganda - Preliminary impacts of Trump’s expanded global gag rule.
523 ACC w
As one of the largest recipients of U.S. global health assistance, including family planning, Uganda will be significantly impacted by the Trump-Pence administration policy entitled “Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance.” The policy—commonly referred to as the Global Gag Rule by opponents—effectively prohibits organizations from using their private, non-U.S. funds to provide comprehensive, safe abortion services; offer information or referrals for abortions; or to advocate for the legalization or liberalization of safe abortion services. Importantly, this latest iteration of the Global Gag Rule applies to all U.S. global health assistance. Since the George W. Bush administration’s Global Gag Rule, research has demonstrated that the policy severely eroded the provision of family planning and related health care services for women in rural and other underserved areas in Uganda.
