Report of the Second Regional Francophone West Africa Postabortion Care Meeting: Strengthening Postabortion Family Planning

This report gives a brief status of the history of postabortion care (PAC) programs in Francophone West Africa and efforts to improve PAC services and then describes a workshop held in October 2013, where E2A disseminated findings from its assessment of PAC programs in Burkina Faso, Guinea, Senegal, and Togo. At the 2013 workshop, representatives from seven Francophone West African countries, plus representatives from Cameroon and Rwanda, came together with local and international implementing partners and donors to share knowledge about PAC best practices and/or to develop roadmaps for strengthening PAC programs in their countries. Summaries of presentations from that conference and other supporting information are found in the body and annexes of this report.
