Inserting 7 Quinacrine (Atabrine) pellets into the uterine cavity via an IUD inserter two
times one month apart provides effective permanent sterilization. Already 200,000 women
in 50 countries have benefited from this procedure, developed by Dr Jaime Zipper of
Santiago Chile. The procedure is quick and comfortable, and can be provided by health
care professionals, with fully informed consent. Abortion providers are ideally suited to
offer this procedure.
