Advancing measurement of abortion quality

May 2017

Report and next steps from May 2017 meeting at Wilton Park, which brought together a broad cross-section of stakeholders for a participatory discussion in the first critical step of a process to build, pilot, validate and promote a suite of common measures of abortion service quality for
widespread use and formal adoption. The purpose of the discussion was to seek support for the idea that common measures of abortion service quality are useful, and to reach agreement on the quality dimensions and outcomes of interest to prioritise in the development of a standardised suite of metrics. The meeting was convened by Metrics for Management, Ibis Reproductive Health, and Ipas.
