The Barometer of Women’s Access to Modern Contraceptive Choice launches on September 22nd at the European Parliament

The Barometer of Women’s Access to Modern Contraceptive Choice aims to put Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) at the forefront of the EU and national agendas. As we near the end of the Millennium Development Goals, it is now more critical than ever to ensure a consistent and targeted approach to SRHR policies across the EU and its member states.

The research across 16 EU member states1 shows that EU countries are yet again failing to improve equitable access to modern contraceptive needs.

Yet, what is most alarming is that the situation has stagnated, or even worsened, in almost all countries.

The poorest and most marginalised people bear the brunt of poor SRHR policies; yet to effect any change, it is essential that it is redefined as a policy priority across all member states and the EU, to reach everyone, everywhere.
