World Contraception Day (WCD) takes place on September 26th every year. The annual worldwide campaign centres around a vision where every pregnancy is wanted. Launched in 2007, World Contraception Day’s mission is to improve awareness of contraception and to enable young people to make informed choices on their sexual and reproductive health. Awareness of contraception and reproductive health will help avoid unplanned pregnancy and spread of sexually transmitted diseases. This global event, organised by and supported a number of international health agencies, is organised under the motto “Contraception: it’s your life, it’s your responsibility”.

As a major supplier of Oral Contraceptives in Ireland, Consilient Health is delighted to mark World Contraception Day by announcing the availability of the newly updated “Oral Contraceptives – Patient Management Guide”.
