In Uganda, about 8% of the maternal deaths are due to unsafe abortion. Abortion complications remain a significant contributor to MMR, 14 % of unintended pregnancies end up in abortion.  Since fertility resumes early, comprehensive PAC across all service points must include provider-initiated counselling on family planning and provision of modern contraceptives to improve on the existing low uptake.

PSI Uganda through the Women’s Health Project, supports a franchise network of private clinics to offer integrated reproductive health services namely; family planning, PAC and cervical cancer screening.
