The qualitative phase consisted of spot analyses broadcasted in Italy and abroad, in-depth interviews within the professionals community and women who decided to terminate the pregnancy or women who induced abortion (or who have abortions). The quantitative phase consisted of a questionnaire within professionals across Italy. It emerges a lack of information and communication on the issue at a national niveau. It is need a training about the alternatives to abortion (anonymous birth) and about the development of culturally competent care. A training course is implemented within public and private professionals and volunteers (health and social) across Italy; it is designed to the acquisition of cultural knowledge and skills to integrate cultural and religious differences.
