Postabortion Care (PAC) This paper summarizes an operations research study to improve the PAC counseling and contraceptive uptake among adolescent PAC patients seeking services in the Dominican Republic. Before the study and intervention, few patients left with contraception; after the intervention, 40 percent of patients who wished to delay pregnancy left with a contraceptive method, with no significant differences found between the adolescents and older women in terms of contraceptive uptake.
