Ensuring high-quality care

Making high-quality abortion care a priority—even in the world’s most remote regions

No matter where they live, women and girls—and all people who can get pregnant— should have access to the highest possible quality of abortion and contraceptive care.

To ensure high-quality abortion care, we train doctors, midwives and nurses to safely and respectfully perform abortions and provide counseling on contraceptive options. We equip health facilities, provide clinical guidance and help keep clinics stocked with necessary supplies. We also work to expand women’s right and ability to self-manage an abortion with pills.

These are Ipas’s areas of expertise, and we draw on decades of experience helping countries improve their health systems’ ability to provide accessible abortion care.
