Webinar: The continuum of abortion care: serving women in the second trimester
Women who present in the second trimester are at higher risk of morbidity and mortality, especially in places where abortion is restricted and unsafe abortion is prevalent. Caring for women who need second trimester services, whether for safe abortion or after unsafe abortion, is an opportunity to save women’s lives. In this webinar, we will discuss the epidemiology of second trimester abortion, review clinical vignettes, present evidence-based guidelines for second trimester safe abortion and postabortion care, and talk about introducing second trimester services in health systems using Ethiopia as an example. Please join us!
