Connecting people anywhere in Aotearoa New Zealand to abortion services
DECIDE is Aotearoa New Zealand’s National Abortion Telehealth Service. It's funded by the Ministry of Health and run by Family Planning New Zealand and Magma Healthcare. We provide information about abortion, abortion services and how people can access abortion care in New Zealand. We also provide an early medical abortion by phone service (telemedicine) across New Zealand.
Connecting people with information, services, and support
We're working to improve access to abortion services and to help people get the information, services, and support they need to be healthy and well.
The National Abortion Telehealth Service project provides this website, web chat and a free phone number (0800 DECIDE), so people can find out about abortion services in Aotearoa New Zealand and how to access abortion care.
We also provide telemedicine to provide early medical abortion services over the phone.
It's another option so that people have more choice about services.
