WHO New Abortion Care Guideline

Comprehensive abortion care includes the provision of information, abortion management (including induced abortion, and care related to pregnancy loss/spontaneous abortion and post-abortion care. Strengthening
access to comprehensive abortion care within the health system is fundamental to meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) relating to good health and well-being (SDG3) and gender equality (SDG5). WHO’s
Global Reproductive Health Strategy, which seeks to accelerate progress towards achievement of international development goals, identifies elimination of unsafe abortion2 as a priority mandate. The importance of qualitabortion care to health is similarly underscored by the United Nations Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health, which includes evidence-based interventions for abortion and post-abortion care as one effective way to help individuals thrive and communities transform (WHO New Guideline on Abortion Care )


The Studying Accompaniment Model Feasibility & Effectiveness (SAFE) Study

SAFE Study is a rigorous prospective study to measure the effectiveness of self-managed abortion with accompaniment group support, not only in an attempt to address these persistent concerns about effectiveness and safety, but also to gather more data on the experiences of people who self-manage and to better understand their support needs with the objective os : 

• Measuring the effectiveness of self-managed medication abortion via the accompaniment model
• Measuring  the nature and incidence of complications (the safety) of self-managed medication abortion via the accompaniment model
• Testing whether self-managed medication abortion via the accompaniment model is non-inferior to clinically-managed medication abortion

The primary outcome for the study was effectiveness of self-managed MA with accompaniment support: specifically, the proportion of participants that reported a complete abortion during the follow-up process without surgical evacuation at any point.
