The PAC (post-abortion care) Project has already helped strengthen seven hospitals in northwest China's Gansu Province, as discussed at a PAC Project conference held in Beijing on November 16, 2014.

The PAC Project aims to help Chinese women use effective contraceptive measures to lower the rates of induced and repeated abortion as well as to improve health standards by popularizing high-quality nationwide PAC clinics that offer women reproductive health care services and post-abortion consultations.

The "Last 1 Fund" was established by the China Women's Development Foundation (CWDF) and charity enterprises as part of the project to subsidize hospitals to establish PAC clinics.

The Lanzhou Municipal Maternal and Child Health Hospital, which recently passed re-accreditation, once again received the "quality service" plaque at the PAC Project conference, held to mark the project's third anniversary and to provide updates on the progress of the project.

In addition, another six hospitals of Gansu Province were added to the program, including the First Hospital of Lanzhou University, the General Hospital of Lanzhou Military Area Command of Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA), the Lanzhou Municipal First People's Hospital, the Wuwei Municipal People's Hospital, the Zhangye Municipal People's Hospital as well as the Tianshui Municipal Maternal and Child Health Hospital. To date, a total of 11 hospitals have been subsidized within the province.

A total of 486 clinics have been opened in 170 cities across the country's 30 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions — 30 more clinics than was original planned. Approximately 1.5 million women across China are expected to benefit from the project on an annual basis, according to data released at the conference.

The PAC Project was jointly launched in 2011 by the CWDF, the Family Planning Branch of the Chinese Medical Association, and the Science and Technology Institute under the National Population and Family Planning Commission.
