The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on access to and enjoyment of sexual and reproductive health services and rights. But IPPF members' resilience shined through. These are stories from Bulgaria, Serbia, Ireland and Estonia.
This report analyses how easily women in 16 EU countries can access modern contraceptives. It finds that overall, the situation in most countries has stagnated or worsened in recent years. The report’s findings are based on information about the national policy landscapes provided by national experts in each of the 16 countries.
We call on national decision-makers to support the implementation of a comprehensive approach to contraceptive choice in the 16 countries within a broader sexual and reproductive health and rights agenda. This is fundamental to ensuring the wellbeing of all women and girls, particularly the most vulnerable.
