Evaluating an Intervention to Increase Use of Call Centre Support for Self-managed Medical Abortion

Start date: October 15, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Self-management of medical abortion (MA) pills purchased from pharmacies is considered to be one of the reasons behind falling morbidity and mortality from unsafe abortion in recent years. While pharmacy workers commonly sell MA medications over the counter, they have inadequate knowledge about how women should take the medications and their potential complications, and do not offer adequate information and counselling to women buying the drugs. This study aims to evaluate if a pharmacy-based intervention to promote use of a support hotline (Marie Stopes Zambia (MSZ) call centre) among MA purchasers can increase use of the call centre, and to assess whether correct MA use and acceptability of self- administered MA is higher among MA users who contact the call centre than those who self-administer MA without call centre support.
