In Bangladesh 14% of maternal death occurs due to unsafe abortion. Menstrual Regulation (MR) is a natinally approved procedure and is performed by skilled providers during the first 6-10 weeks of amenorrhea. The evaluation found that that the NGOs are capable of performing MR services, MR training and other reproductive health services. It is recommended that the NGOs should ensure poor-focused services, put emphasis on quality of care, explore other funding options and to ensure uniform financial and performance reporting system among the MR NGOs.
