Abortion Providers' experiences and views on self-managed medication abortion, an exploratory study.

Contraception 2019 Apr 16. Epub 2019 Apr 16.

University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 200 Hawkins Drive, Iowa City, IA, 52242.

Objective: Data on the practice of self-managed medication abortion are limited, in part because this practice takes place purposefully outside of established healthcare systems. Given this, we aimed to ascertain abortion providers' familiarity with self-managed medication abortion and associated complications, compare regional differences, and evaluate provider attitudes.

Study Design: We distributed an online survey to members of Society for Family Planning, Association of Reproductive Health Providers, and the Abortion Care Network between July and September 2017 querying experiences with and opinions about self-managed abortion. Read More

Novel approaches to estimating abortion incidence.

Reprod Health 2019 Apr 18;16(1):44. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

Guttmacher Institute, 125 Maiden Lane 7th Floor, New York, NY, 10038, USA.

Background: In countries where abortion is legally restricted or clandestine, estimates of abortion incidence are needed in order to bring attention to the reality of this practice. Innovations in methods for estimating stigmatized behaviors, coupled with changes in the conditions under which women obtain abortions, prompt us to review new approaches to estimating abortion incidence and propose innovations in this field.

Methods: We discuss five approaches for yielding accurate estimates in countries with restrictive abortion laws. Read More

Treatment cost and costing model of obstetric complications at a hospital in Myanmar.

PLoS One 2019 20;14(3):e0213141. Epub 2019 Mar 20.

Division of Social and Administrative Pharmacy, Department of Pharmacy, Faculty of Pharmacy, Mahidol University, Bangkok, Thailand.

Maternal health still remains a major challenge in almost all developing countries. In Myanmar, the country met only 62% of its target for the maternal mortality rate (130 per 100,000 live birth) even though proportion of skilled birth attendant (SBA) and antenatal care (ANC) coverage was 80% in 2015. Despite the estimated large maternal complications, most maternal healthcare program ignored the burden of those morbidity because of limited understanding of the incidence and prevalence of morbidity conditions and cost of those morbidity burdens on society.

Mother-to-child transmission and gestational syphilis: Spatial-temporal epidemiology and demographics in a Brazilian region.

PLoS Negl Trop Dis 2019 02 21;13(2):e0007122. Epub 2019 Feb 21.

Faculdade de Ciências da Saúde, Biomedicina, Universidade do Oeste Paulista, Presidente Prudente, SP, Brazil.

Syphilis is a Sexually Transmitted Infection (IST) with significant importance to public health, due to its impact during pregnancy (Gestational Syphilis-GS); especially because syphilis can affect fetus and neonates' development (mother-to-child transmission-MTCT of syphilis), by increasing susceptibility to abortion, premature birth, skeletal malformations, meningitis and pneumonia. Measures to control and eliminate MTCT of syphilis have failed on the last few years in Brazil and this research aimed to identify the seasonality of notified cases of syphilis in a region of São Paulo state. The studied region, Pontal do Paranapanema, comprises 32 cities located in the West of São Paulo state, in Brazil. Read More

Attitudes and practices related to intrauterine devices for nulliparous women among Chinese health care providers.

Reprod Health 2019 Jan 31;16(1):10. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

NHC Key Lab. of Reproduction Regulation (Shanghai Institute of Planned Parenthood Research), Fudan University, Shanghai, 200237, China.

Background: Unintended pregnancy and induced abortion among young (unmarried or nulliparous) women have become serious social and health issues in China, which are thought to partly result from low use of long-acting reversible contraception, such as intrauterine devices (IUDs). Considering that providers may play an especially important role in increasing use of this particular method, we investigated Chinese health care providers' attitudes and practices regarding IUDs use for nulliparous women, and further examine the potential factors and reasons contributing to their attitudes and practices.

Methods: We recruited health care providers at two Chinese national academic conferences and surveyed them about knowledge of IUDs, willingness to recommend IUDs to nulliparous women, and their related practices. Read More

What contraception do women use after experiencing complications from abortion? an analysis of cohort records of 18,688 postabortion care clients in Tanzania.

BMC Womens Health 2019 Jan 28;19(1):22. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children (MOHCDGEC), PO Box 9083, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

Background: The family planning component of postabortion care (PAC) is critical, as it helps women to prevent unintended pregnancies and reduce future incidence of life-threatening unsafe abortion. In Tanzania, PAC was recently decentralized from tertiary-level district hospitals to primary health care dispensaries in four regions of the country. This analysis describes interventions used to improve access to high quality PAC services during decentralization; examines results and factors that contribute to PAC clients' voluntary uptake of contraception; and develops recommendations for improving postabortion contraceptive services.
