Under the theme ‘Contraception: Whose responsibility is it anyway?’ World Contraception Day (WCD) 2010 explores young people’s attitudes towards responsibility for contraception. The multi-national survey shows that knowledge about contraceptive methods is highly diverging across all regions included in the survey.
The annual survey is being conducted every year since 2009 as part of the ongoing World Contraception Day. It explores young people’s attitudes towards responsibility within relationships, focusing specifically on sex and contraception. The survey is published every year in partnership with the WCD coalition of NGOs and the Youth Task Force.
