CONTEXT: Treatment of complications of unsafe abortion can be a significant financial drain on health system resources, particularly in developing countries. In Bangladesh, menstrual regulation is provided by the government as a backup to contraception. The comparison of economic costs of providing menstrual regulation care with those of providing treatment of abortion complications has implications for policy in Bangladesh and internationally. METHODS: Data on incremental costs of providing menstrual regulation and care for abortion complications were collected through surveys of providers at 21 public-sector facilities in Bangladesh. These data were entered into an abortion-oriented costing spreadsheet to estimate the health system costs of providing such services.
