To reduce inequities in access to medical abortion through better integration into primary care featured image

At least one in four Australian women experience an unintended pregnancy in their lifetime. Many women choose to have an abortion but face difficulties accessing this care, particularly in rural areas. Less than 1000 of Australia's 35,000 GPs currently provide medical abortion services in their clinics despite the availability of safe and effective medical abortifacients on the pharmaceutical benefits scheme since 2013. This project will reduce inequities in access to abortion by identifying successful strategies used internationally to integrate medical abortion into primary care and disseminating this knowledge through established health professional networks to service providers and key stakeholders.
