Communities Take Action in Kenya: Strengthening Postabortion Care (Project Brief No. 13)
In Kenya, abortion-related complications are a leading cause of morbidity among women. RESPOND designed an intervention package, the Community Mobilization for Postabortion Care (COMMPAC) project, to increase awareness and use of postabortion care (PAC) services and improving family planning, reproductive health, and maternal health outcomes. After the intervention, women in the project areas were more likely to seek PAC services at dispensaries when they experienced pregnancy complications than those in comparison areas, and providers became more confident about offering such services.
