The report highlights the proceedings of the workshop that addressed the issues related to the clinical, health systems and policy considerations and recommendations contained in the WHO guidance document and related materials; discussions on the legal and policy factors that facilitate or constrain access to safe abortion and post-abortion care; and strategies at national level for integrating safe abortion - in circumstances where it is legally permitted - and addressing/responding to unsafe abortion within national and local initiatives.
