COVID-19 Contraception and Family Planning

Contraceptive and Family Planning services and supplies are CORE components of essential health services and access to these services is a fundamental human right.

This standard needs to be respected and protected as such by governments prioritising scarce resources during this pandemic. But with the focus of many health systems on the response to the COVID19 pandemic, the provision of basic contraception counselling, the delivery of contraceptive products and services and the functioning of supply chains have been disrupted and women and men are at a disadvantage in seeking care from their regular providers.
