Emergency Contraception Technical Consultation

APC is convening its second technical consultation this spring.

A survey of field-based implementers will be conducted to access the challenges, benefits, and logistical issues in including EC in community-based family planning programs. The survey data will be shared with participants as well as inform the discussion of the consultation.
