Manual Vacuum Aspiration
Prompt treatment of postabortion complications, whether the abortion is spontaneous (miscarriage) or induced, can save women’s lives. The PAC Consortium seeks to make technology and drugs for the treatment of postabortion complications more widely available. Evidence shows that manual vacuum aspiration (MVA) is a safe technology that can be used by mid-level providers and other health care workers for uterine evacuation.
