Policy and programmatic actions are needed to increase availability of and access to Menstrual Regulation (MR) [defined as the “procedure of regulating the menstrual cycle when menstruation is absent for a short duration,”] and treatment for postabortion complications. Strategies include increasing training for providers and disseminating information about the MR program at the community level. In addition, provision of contraceptive counseling and methods for postabortion care and MR patients must be improved, particularly at private-sector facilities.
