Menstrual Regulation and Post Abortion Care on Outreach

  Marie Stopes International                   Bangladesh

Marie Stopes International (MSI) tests efforts to provide Menstrual Regulation (MR) services and post-abortion care through outreach programs across government Family Welfare Centers (FWCs) in three remote districts in Bangladesh. Trained MSI paramedics will rove between the centers to provide this care. Family Welfare Assistants will be trained on values clarification and outreach information provision, and providers at FWCs will be trained on the management of medical emergency cases that may arise. The paramedics will follow up with patients by phone and provide follow-up care at FWCs, including post-abortion family planning and cervical cancer screening to ensure comprehensive care.
