Associations between abortion services and acceptance of postabortion contraception in six Indian states

Women receiving induced abortions or postabortion care are at high risk of subsequent unintended pregnancy, and intervals of less than six months between abortion and subsequent pregnancy may be associated with adverse  outcomes. This study highlights the prevalence and attributes of postabortion  contraceptive acceptance from 2,456 health facilities in six major Indian states, among 292,508 women who received abortion care services from July 2011  through June 2014.
