What is World Contraception Day?

Founded in 2007, World Contraception Day takes place on the 26th of September every year. The global campaign raises awareness of birth control and pushes for better education when it comes to sexual and reproductive health.

Why is contraceptive choice important?

  • Research shows that making an informed choice about birth control allows  you to take better care of yourself
  • Our contraceptive needs change for a variety of reasons, so it’s important to know your options
  • Being able to choose from the full range methods encourages consistent and effective use of birth control*

Check out our Voice of Choice panel discussion from World Contraception Day 2019, featuring partners OKReal, Womanly, Health and Holistic Health Code.
