World Contraception Day 26 september 2015


World Contraception Day takes place on September 26th every year. The annual worldwide campaign centers around a vision where every pregnancy is wanted. Launched in 2007, WCD's mission is to improve awareness of contraception and to enable young people to make informed choices on their sexual and reproductive health.

This year's World Contraception Day will be accompanied by the #AFriendOfMine digital campaign. It is aimed directly at teens and young adults, and will get us closer to reaching our goal: a world in which every pregnancy is wanted.
