About the PAC Global Resources Guide
Since 1994, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has supported postabortion care programs in over 30 countries. In the fall of 2001, a global evaluation was done of its postabortion care programs followed by the development of a five year strategy. The Postabortion Care (PAC) model was revised, a results framework with indicators was developed, and the Postabortion Care Global Resources Guide was identified as a key activity in the strategy to respond to the need for standardized materials.
The PAC Global Resources Guide is a compilation of basic instruments intended for policymakers and program planners who are designing or revising their current postabortion care program. Organizations that provide assistance to PAC programs worldwide may also benefit from this package.
The PAC Global Resources Guide is not meant to overhaul what currently exists in countries but rather to supplement materials that countries already have. The documents may be used in their current form or adapted as needed to your country context.
More than 600 documents were reviewed for the global PAC Resource package. Each section of the package has undergone extensive international review and field testing.
