Joyce currently works on the STEP UP (Strengthening Evidence for the Programming on Unintended Pregnancy) project under the Population Dynamics and Reproductive Health research program. The project aims to generate a coherent body of robust scientific evidence to address reproductive and maternal health, through reducing unmet need for family planning (FP) and improving access to safe abortion (SA) services.
