United States and Denmark: different approaches to health care and family planning

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Suggests that, compared to the USA, Danish health care policies and family planning services delivery systems are more conducive to the promotion of effective contraceptive practice, more instrumental in conveying information to high-risk groups, and more successful in reducing the incidence of unintended pregnancies and induced abortions. One of the major reasons for this difference may stem from the positive and nonambivalent climate of public opinion about sexuality in Denmark and the manner in which health care and family planning services are delivered to all segments of the population. -from Authors
