A series of research activities were undertaken in Armenia to assess the introduction of medical abortion. A clinical study found medical abortion to be acceptable, feasible, and highly effective. Follow-up assessments found that all five of the study sites continued to offer medical abortion after the study was completed, with four of the sites achieving high success rates.
