Health Worker Roles in Providing Safe Abortion Care and Post-abortion Contraception

The primary objective of this guideline is to provide evidence-based recommendations on the safety, effectiveness, feasibility and acceptability of a range of health workers in the delivery of recommended and effective interventions for providing safe abortion and post-abortion care and in providing post-abortion contraception. These recommendations can be adapted to the context of local health workforce resources and the public health needs in the country of implementation. The guideline is expected to be useful for: national and subnational policy-makers; implementers and managers of national and subnational reproductive health programmes; nongovernmental and other organisations and professional bodies involved in the planning and management of services for abortion and post-abortion care.
