“We continue to see over and over again in many parts of the world where #LGBT people are criminalized or discriminated against, we always see a rise of #HIV infections, because people strongly associate HIV with being gay.” - @ejaf Chairman David Furnish. #AIDS2020Virtual

Postabortion Care

EngenderHealth has developed a package of postabortion care services that includes protocols for emergency treatment of complications from abortion or miscarriage, family planning counseling and services, and referrals to other health care services.

To date, EngenderHealth has been involved with implementing postabortion care services in nearly 30 countries and has trained more than 15,000 clinicians to provide lifesaving treatments. Below are some examples of our work:

  • In Tanzania, complications from abortion are a leading cause of maternal death. Through the ACQUIRE Tanzania Project (ATP), EngenderHealth has partnered with the Tanzanian government since 2004 to improve availability of services for comprehensive postabortion care (cPAC) in rural areas. Previously, these services were only available at regional hospitals, which were too far away for many women to receive timely emergency care.
  • In Kenya, through the ACQUIRE Project, EngenderHealth mobilized communities to prevent and treat incomplete abortion by:
    • Conducting community outreach on the importance of maternal care and accessing health services
    • Training both private and public sector midwives and providers in postabortion care
  • In Cambodia, EngenderHealth assisted the Ministry of Health in developing a national postabortion care policy.
  • In the Dominican Republic and Malawi, EngenderHealth conducted research to identify and address the needs for adolescent postabortion care clients, published in the report Postabortion Care for Adolescents: Results from Research in the Dominican Republic and Malawi.

EngenderHealth’s training curriculum, Counseling the Postabortion Client: A Training Curriculum, can be used by health care providers everywhere to integrate comprehensive, high-quality counseling into postabortion care services and is available in English, French, and Spanish.
