This operations research was undertaken to assess the efficacy of medical abortion and patient satisfaction in the clinic setting, in addition to determining healthcare providers’ views in Vietnam. The results demonstrate the safety, efficacy, and acceptability of medical abortion at participating clinics. The majority of surveyed providers endorsed adding medical abortion at their own facilities.
