Trump Policy Harming Kenya, Uganda Health Services

A policy issued by U.S. President Donald Trump requires foreign NGOs receiving U.S. global health aid to certify they do not use their own, non-U.S. funds to provide abortions except in cases of rape, incest, or to save a woman's life. If they wish to keep their U.S. funding, the groups also cannot offer information or referrals for abortion - even where abortions are legal - or advocate liberalizing abortion laws.
