The third in a series, this Instructions for Use (IFU) brochure on the use of misoprostol for prevention of postpartum hemorrhage was drafted based on current available information. In June 2007, Gynuity invited professionals with epidemiological, clinical and programmatic expertise on PPH prevention and misoprostol to review this document. The aim of this collaborative review was to reach consensus on clinical practice guidelines and make available evidence-based information on appropriate use of misoprostol for this indication. This brochure was last updated in September 2015 – the updated version is available in English, French and Spanish.
