The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (National Academies) are private, nonprofit institutions that provide expert advice on some of the most pressing challenges facing the United States and the world. Their work helps shape sound policies, inform public opinion and advance the pursuit of science, engineering, and medicine.
Why we invest:
The Health and Medicine Division—an operating unit of the National Academies—helps those in government and the private sector make informed health decisions by providing reliable evidence. National Academies reports are the product of meticulous information collection, analysis and deliberation by leading experts in the field. Their unique and rigorous study process puts them in the position to provide indisputable, evidence-based analysis of the safety of abortion. We provided a grant in support of a comprehensive report on the current state of the science related to the provision of safe, high-quality abortion services in the US. The report was released in March of 2018. Click here to view the research findings and download the report.
