A mixed-methods study will investigate the barriers and facilitators of use and provision of post-abortion care (PAC) services in Afghanistan and South Sudan. The proposed research will result in qualitative and quantitative data on PAC service delivery and utilization in IMC-supported health facilities. The results, along with evidence from other countries, will provide guidance on how humanitarian agencies can improve abortion-related programming.
