Specific Research

  • Abortion Reforms and Young Females: A Unified Analysis of Data from Low- and Middle-Income Countries

    2021  

     View Summary

    10代での妊娠は、学校教育からの中退や労働市場での低賃金、身体的なリスクなど、女性の生涯にわたる影響をもたらしうる。低所得国においては、紛争や政治混乱下など、低年齢での妊娠リスクが高く、望まぬ妊娠の中絶が法的に制限されていることが多い。本研究は、過去四半世紀の間に人工妊娠中絶がアクセス可能になったことで、中低所得国の女性の妊娠出産や教育、結婚行動がどのように変化したかを分析した。特に、女性教育を増加させ、10代での結婚を減少させる効果が強いことを発見した。本研究費を使って、学生RAの作業費用や、英文校正の費用を支出することができ、成果は高等研究所ディスカッション・ペーパーとして公開することができた。今後雑誌掲載に向けてさらに研究を進める予定である。

  • ボツワナにおけるAIDS治療の無償化政策とHIV予防行動に関する実証分析

    2020  

     View Summary

    本研究では、2002年以降実施されたAIDSの治療の無償化がHIV感染予防行動にもたらした影響を分析する。本年度は、データの取得と整理、初期的な分析までを目標としていた。取得予定だったデータは主に2つある。1つは、標本調査による社会経済データだが、取得は完了し、整理も行った。もう1つは、医療機関の位置情報と、無償AIDS治療の開始時期の情報である。これらは取得済みであり、整理を行った。しかし、コロナ禍により結合作業に必要な追加情報の取得が遅滞している。コロナ禍の影響で調査・分析は持ち越したが、個別のデータの整理は完了し、分析準備は整えることができた。この準備をもとに、今後さらに研究を加速させていきたい。
