ICN, ICM Joint Consensus Statement on Postabortion Family Planning
Date Posted: 06/Feb/2014
Calling for a renewed commitment to the health of women following induced abortion, ICN, the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO), International Confederation of Midwives (ICM), United States Agency for International Development (USAID), White Ribbon Alliance (WRA), Department for International Development (DFID), and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, has issued a joint consensus statement on the importance of family planning service provision to women when they are treated for postabortion complications. 
 
The statement commits the endorsing organisations to ensure that voluntary family planning counselling and services are included as an essential component of postabortion care in all settings, empower and serve postabortion women of all ages to prevent unintended pregnancies and further abortions, and provide information on optimal pregnancy spacing for those women who want a pregnancy. It lays out the rationale for offering family planning to women in such circumstances and reviews the intervention approaches that can be followed.  Read the statement here.
