World Contraception Day 26 september 2013

WCD will be using an umbrella theme for this and future years: 'Its your life; its your future'. This theme has been chosen as it is forward-looking, positive and empowering.

There are 3 sub-themes:

  • Your options where young people can learn about all the contraceptive options available, using a reliable, unbiased source of information.
  • Your future: understanding how unplanned pregnancies can happen and how the body changes during puberty
  • Your partner: learning to talk to your partner about contraception and how to build a trusting relationship based on reliable information

Organisations may choose whether to concentrate on one theme per year or cover all or some of the subjects this year.

A selection of materials is available in the form of a modular toolbox addressing each theme with background information and info graphics. Social media will be used more widely this year and suggested topics for Twitter and Facebook will be made available.
