How can a woman get a medication abortion in the Middle East and North Africa?
There are several ways that women in the region can obtain a medication abortion:
Mifepristone/misoprostol is available in both Tunisia and Israel. Women living in these countries or women traveling to these countries may be able to obtain this regimen.
Misoprostol is widely available in the region. In many countries, misoprostol is available from pharmacies.
Telemedicine services such as Women on Web and Women Help Women may be able to provide mifepristone/misoprostol to women living in countries where abortion is legally restricted and where mifepristone is not otherwise available.
