Strong Evidence for PAC Policy

  • Health policy changes, the development and dissemination of protocols and service delivery guidelines for PAC, and the reorganization of services are needed to institutionalize PAC in hospital settings or provide PAC as an outpatient procedure.
  • Allowing trained midwives to provide PAC (using MVA) will help increase access to PAC services.
  • Women are at an increased risk for spontaneous miscarriage if they experience physical violence during pregnancy.
