Thursday, October 28, 2021
3-4pm (Pacific Daylight Time) / 6pm – 7pm (Eastern Daylight Time) / 11pm-Midnight (British Summer Time)
Organized by: FIGO
Chairs: Beverly Winikoff, USA and Caroline De Costa, Australia
Gynuity president Beverly Winikoff co-chairs a special session and gives a presentation on self-managed and “no-test” abortion. Beverly’s presentation will describe some of the attempts to document the outcomes of medical abortion using non-traditional services that give individuals more agency and require less contact with the medical system. Examples are presented from the US, UK, and Mexico. Registered congress attendees will be able to watch this session live or on-demand.
