Ipas Trains Indian Health Care Workers In Safer Abortion Technique

The Guardian: India’s doctors learn safer abortion techniques to cut maternal deaths
“…At Vani Vilas hospital for women and children in Bangalore, in the south-west state of Karnataka, doctors and nurses gather for training in a safer, quicker [abortion] procedure — the manual vacuum aspiration technique, which is significantly underused in India — and in how to better support women having abortions. The four-day training program is run by Ipas, an NGO focused on preventing deaths from unsafe abortion…” (Cousins, 3/9).
