What young people around the world think about contraception / birth control

Your life, your choices – it is crucial to be empowered when it comes to contraception. The effects of contraceptive choices go beyond the physical level shaping both personal and social aspects of lives. Through encouraging responsible conversations and providing information and educational programs, World Contraception Day can foster a culture of empowerment, helping young people to make informed decisions about their own futures.

Reliable methods of contraception can offer not only bodily autonomy but also the chance to shape one's own future. Girls and women who have access to contraception can pursue education, build their careers and succeed in life without the unexpected interruption of unplanned motherhood. With knowledge about contraception and the freedom to choose, young people can make choices for themselves.

    Alarming numbers prove that the COVID-19 pandemic has harmed women and girls worldwide

    The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted the well-being of women in multiple ways, including contraception, family planning and gender-based violence. The consequences include millions of unintended pregnancies1, 500,000 more girls being forced into marriage2, and 31 million additional cases of gender-based violence in the first six months of lockdown alone3.

    These topics have therefore become more urgent as life circumstances have changed drastically throughout the last year. In fact, the progress made in the past decades on these matters is strongly at risk of being rolled back. The pandemic is deepening pre-existing inequalities and exposing vulnerabilities in social, political, and economic systems, which have a negative effect on women especially, as investigated circumstances show.
