Incorporating Postpartum and Post-Abortion Family Planning and Immunization Integration in Commitments

Post-abortion family planning (PAFP) incorporates voluntary contraceptive counseling and provision of a contraceptive method at the same time and location that a woman receives facility-based abortion care or post-abortion care (PAC). PAC is any treatment immediately following an induced or spontaneous abortion (miscarriage), and also includes treatment of emergency complications, family planning (FP) services, links to other reproductive health services, and engagement of communities and community health workers. However, acceptance of a contraceptive method must never be a precondition for providing PAC.
