Who should use this resource
First published in 2013, the Clinical Updates in Reproductive Health were designed originally as an up-to-date, evidence-based clinical resource for Ipas staff. Over time, the publication has also been of use to:
- clinicians providing abortion care
- clinical and public health professionals working on patient care protocols in public health systems and the private sector
- safe abortion advocates and policymakers creating laws and policies that fulfill women’s and girls’ right to health
How to use this resource
Use the drop-down menu in the top left corner to find clinical recommendations by topic area. With each recommendation, you’ll see a “last reviewed” date that indicates how recently our experts reviewed all relevant evidence and updated our recommendation accordingly. All our recommendations are reviewed at least annually, updated as necessary, and compiled each year into a PDF for download. Please send requests for print copies to firstname.lastname@example.org.
