(March 2012) The Population and Poverty (PopPov) Research Network brings together researchers who are examining how population dynamics affect economic outcomes, primarily in African countries. The overarching vision is one of a Network where results, methodological advances, and policy impacts are shared across research teams and eventually translated into policy recommendations.

In this video, PopPov researcher Kelly Jones of the International Food Policy Research Institute discusses research findings from Ghana that show how the Mexico City Policy (the “Global Gag Rule”) had unintended consequences for induced abortion and unintended pregnancies, especially for the poorest and least educated.
