The Consortium for Emergency Contraception is an international collaboration among eight organizations involved in family planning and womens health initiatives in over 100 countries.
The Consortium seeks to broaden the knowledge and availability of hormonal emergency contraception through model introduction programmes designed to ensure safe, effective, and appropriate patterns of use, and through the dissemination of proven introduction strategies.
A central component of the Consortiums programme is a partnership between public-sector organizations and private industry to make a high-quality product for hormonal emergency contraception available to large numbers of women worldwide at the lowest possible cost.
Sensitive to the diversity of circumstances in individual countries, the Consortium works in partnership with local organizations to implement its introductory activities and expand best practices. The Consortium welcomes the opportunity to work with other organizations interested in expanding access to information and services for emergency contraception.
