On September 26th, or World Contraception Day as we prefer to call it, it is our mission to spread the word
    and raise awareness about contraception and safe sex. Our aim is to help each new generation
    of adults make informed decisions until every pregnancy in the world is a planned one.


    World Contraception Day takes place on September 26th every year. The annual worldwide campaign centers around a vision where every pregnancy is wanted. Launched in 2007, WCD’s mission is to improve awareness of contraception and to enable young people to make informed choices on their sexual and reproductive health.

    Contraception Methods: How to Decide

    With so many birth control options available, choosing a most suitable form can be discouraging for many teens. We support youth worldwide to answer initial questions: Which method protects against STIs? What about convenience of use? How effective are they? Our social media channels covering infographics, images and charts show it all at a glance. We encourage youth to get the contraception facts and ask their healthcare provider which contraception is best for them. Take a look and follow us on instagram, facebook and twitter.


    World Contraception Day is supported by a coalition of 15 international Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), governmental organizations and scientific and medical societies with an interest in sexual and reproductive health and is sponsored by Bayer AG.

    The Partners involved are:
