The RESPOND Project designed an intervention package aimed at increasing awareness and use of post-abortion care (PAC) services and improving family planning, reproductive health, and maternal health outcomes. As part of the intervention, RESPOND is working with districts and communities to: strengthen service delivery points to provide PAC services; conduct community mobilization to improve community involvement and knowledge on the prevention and treatment of PAC; build community capacity to address PAC needs; and encourage involvement of those most marginalized and most affected by postabortion complications in community action.This report summarizes the key results emerging from a baseline data collection exercise carried out from May to June 2010 in Naivasha District to provide a benchmark against which the RESPOND intervention may be measured during endline evaluation.
