Supporting Choice of Contraception

Pregnancy planning

The health and economic benefits of contraception worldwide are remarkable, including a 44% reduction in maternal deaths (averting over 260,000 deaths per year globally) and a 10% reduction in childhood deaths (by lengthening the interval between successive births).  Economic evaluation shows that every £1 spent on contraception saves £11-£29. Yet over 200 million women who wish to avoid pregnancy do not have access to contraception.
