There are different ways to have an abortion. Some people choose to use an online service to get abortion pills. Our researchers at the University of California, San Francisco are conducting a study to better understand the experiences of people who use an online service to get an abortion with pills. We are evaluating virtual clinics that serve patients across the United States.
Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health (ANSIRH) is a collaborative research group at the University of California, San Francisco. Our mission is to conduct innovative, rigorous research and build the evidence-base to safely expand access to abortion and help shape the future of reproductive care. The CHAT Study at ANSIRH is being carried out in partnership with California Latinas for Reproductive Justices (CLRJ) and University of California's Center of Expertise on Women's Health, Gender and Empowerment (WHGE COE).
This study will help researchers, healthcare providers, pregnant people, and policy makers understand the experience of people using an online service to get an abortion with pills.
