Abortion service providers, funders, and policy makers need to understand service quality from the client’s perspective, as well as a technical and safety perspective.
Easy to understand and apply, the ACQTool can be integrated into standard data collection applications.
The ACQTool indicators can be used in any country, and have been tested in a wide array of contexts.
The ACQTool was developed through an initiative led by Metrics for Management, Ibis Reproductive Health, and Ipas, and involving an extended ACQ Resource Group of recognized abortion providers, researchers, advocates, and health services leaders. Support for this initiative was provided by the David and Lucille Packard Foundation and the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation.
