Efficacy and acceptability of early mifepristone-misoprostol medical abortion in Ukraine: Results of two clinical trials

This paper reports on two studies that were conducted to improve service delivery of medical abortion in Ukraine by introducing updated, evidence-based regimens. Both studies demonstrated high efficacy and acceptability, as well as a preference for home administration of the misoprostol. The Ukraine Ministry of Health has since updated the national medical abortion protocol to reflect these findings.
