RU-486/Prostaglandin: Considerations for Appropriate Use in Low-Resource Settings
Law, Medicine and Health Care. 1992 Fall; 20(3): 169-183.
Renee Holt explores considerations for appropriate use of the RU 486/prostaglandin treatment for pregnancy terminations in low resource settings. She stresses the need to explore ways to simplify the procedure without compromising safety. They include minimizing side effects and maximizing acceptability, developing one drug that combines RU 486 with prostaglandin, decreasing the dose of RU 486, which would also decrease the cost, preventing or decreasing any illicit and improper uses, and interpreting or changing the law to facilitate its introduction.
