Addressing unmet need by expanding access to safe second trimester medical abortion services in Ethiopia, 2010 − 2014

A comprehensive structured program design, collaboration between the MOH and Ipas, and provider dedication enabled successful introduction of second-trimester abortion services in major regions/states of Ethiopia. A focus on second- trimester medical abortion allows for rapid service introduction without extensive changes to facilities, equipment, or staffing as the needs are similar to obstetric care.
