Who presents past the gestational age limit for first trimester abortion in the public sector in Mexico City?
This study identified socio-demographic factors associated with presenting for abortion services past the gestational age (GA) limit (12 weeks), and thus not receiving services, in Mexico City's public sector first trimester abortion program. Adult women had significantly lower odds than adolescents of presenting past the limit. There was an educational gradient across all age groups.

A behavior-based intervention that prevents sexual assault: the results of a matched-pairs, cluster-randomized study in Nairobi, Kenya.
This study was a cluster-randomized, matched-pairs, parallel trial of a behavior-based sexual assault prevention intervention in the informal settlements in Nairobi, Kenya. The study intervention combined parallel training for young adolescent girls and boys in school settings and showed significant reduction in the rate of sexual assault among girls in this population.
