FIGO endorses the permanent adoption of telemedicine
abortion services

The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately impacted women and girls around the world, in part due to temporary restrictions placed on abortion services in some countries. The rapid adoption of technology in health and care services during the COVID-19 pandemic, meanwhile, has enhanced its potential in providing effective and efficient health care, in particular to those in underserved communities. Telemedicine abortion is one such area that has the potential to enable women and girls to self-manage abortion in their homes, through online consultation with health care providers and with medicines delivered to, or collected by, the patient.
