Manual vacuum aspiration (MVA) can offer a safe, accessible and affordable way to provide abortion and overcome barriers that inhibit women's access to services. This monograph outlines both clinical and practical reasons supporting the use of MVA for induced abortion. Data on the safety, effectiveness and acceptability of MVA are presented, as well as considerations for providers interested in delivering MVA services.
