Less than a year after the Trump administration moved to cut funding for international organizations that provide women’s reproductive health care and abortions, aid groups report they are beginning to see a host of negative impacts.

In Nigeria, health groups found greater difficulty accessing contraception, reduced access to health services, and an increasingly hostile environment for sexual and reproductive health rights.

In Uganda, advocates reported the breakdown of networks between groups that comply with the US policy and those that don’t, affecting the quality and availability of health care. Health groups are also increasingly concerned about the impact on HIV assistance.
