Abortion services are widely available in Armenia. However, riskier surgical methods- often with outdated approaches- are much more readily available than are medical regimens. This commentary reviews abortion provision in Armenia, describes the noted preference for home administration of medical methods by Armenian women, and calls for greater provider training in evidence-based medical abortion methods.
