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 allows people to decide, plan and attain their desired number of children, as well as determine the spacing of pregnancies. World Contraception Day is an annual event which gives voice to the millions of people across the planet without access to contraception and family planning. At present, an estimated 225 million women living in low- to middle-income countries have an unmet need for contraception. It is important that contraception is widely available and accessible through trained health workers to anyone who is sexually active, including adolescents.
