Article | November 2019
Summary: There is little consensus about how to measure quality of care for abortino services. Yet, standardized and validated quality metrics would move our field forward and contribute to quality improvement activities and, ultimately, to improved health outcomes for women and families. Partners in the Abortion Service Quality Initiative are collaborating to develop the first-ever global standard for measuring abortion service quality in low- and middle-income countries, both in and out of health care facilities.
