This study sought to increase access to post-abortion care (PAC) services at the community level in Senegal by introducing misoprostol as a first-line treatment. Both efficacy and satisfaction with the regimen were very high, demonstrating that this treatment can be successfully provided by lower level clinicians in community health settings.
