Health care quality is a multidimensional concept. With support from six private foundations, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine convened a committee to examine the available evidence on the safety and quality of different abortion methods, health facilities, and types of clinicians as well as the potential physical and mental health impacts on women. This resulting report provides a comprehensive review of the state of the science.

 On March 23 at 12PM ETjoin our webinar, where members of the committee who wrote the report will discuss its findings and conclusions.
