The Regulation of Voluntary Interruptions of Pregnancy in Colombia

This document describes the current status of voluntary interruption of pregnancy (VIP) regulation in Colombia.

 

The purpose of this paper is to address the question of what is the current state of VIP regulation in Colombia. In view of this, we show that, despite the fact that there is currently no regulatory decree, Colombia has a normative framework that has been developed mainly through jurisprudence, since the C-355 ruling establishes the bases within which the services must be provided. In addition, there are rules of legal and regulatory status that are applicable to the VIP, and which set specific conditions that are necessary for the provision of health services to be effective and safe.
