Decentralization of Postabortion Care in Senegal and Tanzania

 
In developing countries, PAC programs are frequently available only in urban or regional health facilities, placing rural women at greater risk for mortality and morbidity from complications because they lack access to services. To improve access, USAID has worked with two focus countries, Senegal and Tanzania, to decentralize PAC activities. Required criteria for focus countries were commitment from the Ministry of Health (MOH) and matching funds from the USAID Mission to assist with scale-up and the sustainability of activities.
