YouAct and ECEC launch the first participatory survey on pharmacy access to EC in Europe.

YouAct and the European Consortium for Emergency Contraception launch the first participatory survey on pharmacy access to emergency contraception in Europe.

"Help us learn more about how real access to emergency contraception (EC) is in Europe! 

The European Youth Network on Sexual and Reproductive Rights (YouAct) and ECEC, launch the first participatory survey on pharmacy access to EC in Europe. With this effort, we want to:

§  Learn how EC products are placed and stocked in community pharmacies

§  Identify different EC counselling practices and models

§  Assess if different post-coital contraceptive choices are offered to individuals

§  Update information on the cost of EC pills.

This project is done with technical and logistical support from a research team from the University of Ottawa (Canada) and inspired by a similar initiative conducted by the American Society for Emergency Contraception (ASEC).  Please find the link to the survey here:

In English:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ECECsurveyEN

In Spanish:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ECECsurveySP 

The survey can be responded in less than 10 minutes from your cell phone.  

Please help us in this effort to identify the remaining barriers to timely access to EC in our countries, and advance our reproductive rights to post-coital contraception.  We invite Youth organisations to take part, particularly those with wide networks in various countries and invite Inspire Members to disseminate among their channels. 

Thank you for your collaboration, and enjoy the summer!
