1. Expanding Access to Postabortion Care Services in Mozambique
VSI, AMOG and the Bixby Center at UC Berkeley conducted operations research addressing unsafe abortion with misoprostol in Mozambique. This research brief demonstrates that misoprostol is a promising alternative to surgical methods of treating incomplete abortion, and that expanding the level of health facility and provider trained on misoprostol can increase women’s access to these essential services.
2. Community-based Prevention of PPH with Misoprostol in Mozambique
This brief summarizes the final results a collaborative community-based pilot project of VSI, AMOG, the Bixby Center at UC Berkeley, and PSI. Results show that antenatal care visits and additional community-based strategies, such as TBAs, are key opportunities to reach women with misoprostol and educate them on its use for prevention of PPH.
