The Dupont Clinic innovation evaluates three devices in different countries to improve the provision of later safe abortion. Three provider sites in Mexico, Ethiopia, and the United States will develop and implement these new methods: Lidocaine for fetal demise, DuPont Cannula, and a novel cervical dilation device. Patient and provider feedback will be provided by the sites, and will cover a range of facility sizes and patient populations. The combination of these technologies will make later abortion safer, simpler, and more feasible in most settings.
