Is self-use of medical abortion a viable option? : A systematic review of global evidence with a special focus on India

There is limited documentation of successful interventions on the self-administration or self-use of medical abortion outside the formal health system. There is even less published documentation on the role of informal medicine sellers and on interventions that aimed to change pharmacy policies related to pharmacists' prescribing or practicing medical abortion (MA).

 

This study aims to explore available global evidence on efficacy, safety and acceptability and operational challenges of self-administration or self-use of MA drugs with and without support of the formal health system. Although this study intends to review global evidence, a special focus has been given to document evidence from India separately to facilitate future implementation strategy and policy advocacy.
