National Consultation on Comprehensive Abortion Care for Women: A Brief Report

The National Consultation on Comprehensive Abortion Care for Women was convened by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) and Ipas India on 15 and 16 February, 2016 at Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi. Over 180 national and state government representatives, technical officers, and civil society partners came together to deliberate on a roadmap for increasing access to comprehensive abortion care (CAC) in the country.


Through the two days, participants focused on key aspects of CAC: key modalities for ensuring CAC services in the public health system; innovations for improving quality; pertinent issues such as postabortion contraception and ensuring access to safe abortion while reducing gender-biased sex selection. This document brings out the key discussions and action points on these issues from the national consultation as a roadmap for the way forward in increasing access to CAC at the national and state levels.
