An evaluation of interventions to introduce misoprostol for postabortion care in Kenya

Thursday, July 1, 2010

Although manual vacuum aspiration (MVA) is effective and widely available in Kenya’s public health facilities for uterine evacuation in incomplete abortion, the need for alternative methods in order to increase choices and expand access for women is urgent. Ipas commissioned this evaluation to understand the successes and challenges of the implementation of the use of misoprostol in postabortion care in five health facilities in the Rift Valley, Kenya, in 2009.
