This simple checklist outlines the minimum requirements for quality medical abortion package inserts and can be used to guide insert reviews and improvements.

The checklist was developed by the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) and Gynuity Health Projects after an analysis of medical abortion package inserts from 20 low- and middle-income countries revealed numerous inaccuracies and inconsistencies, including inadequate storage instructions and outdated gestational age limits and regimens (Frye 2020).

A searchable database of quality medical abortion products is available here.
