    Seminar with Dr. Fatoumata Ouattara: Suspicions around Misoprostol: A socio-anthropological study in Burkina Faso

    Dr. Fatoumata Ouattara will talk about the institutional logics and local professional practices related to the employment of misoprostol in maternity care in Burkina Faso. At the same time as it has gained an important role in reducing maternal mortality in many low-income countries, its use in connection with abortion has in Burkina Faso become linked with local suspicions and fears that it will open the door to empowering women to control their sexuality. The seminar is arranged by Forum for Africa Studies and International Maternal and Child Health (IMCH). It will be held at Waldenströmsalen, C11 BV, Rudbecklaboratoriet, Science Park, Dag Hammarskjöldsväg 20.
