Acompañando a las mujeres: legal and safe self-managed abortion
FUNDACION PRO BIENESTAR SEXUAL Y REPRODUCTIVO (PROSER) Colombia
PROSER will introduce the legal sale of mifepristone through pharmacies in 10 municipalities in central Colombia to provide a legal, affordable and safe option for self-managed abortion. The project is supported by a network of medical professionals who prescribe abortion medication (mifepristone/misoprostol) after a health risk assessment. With a prescription, women can access the medication at their local pharmacy in person or by delivery. After taking the medication, the doctor follows-up via telephone to verify the result of the treatment. Information on abortion care is also disseminated though educational materials, including information on this new option of legal self-managed abortion.
