Day of Dialogue: Expanding Opportunities for Increased Access to Emergency Contraception (EC) in Nigeria (Meeting Report)

A 2011 study conducted by the Population Council in Nigeria to assess providers' knowledge, attitudes, and practices regarding emergency contraception revealed gaps that have implications for policy and programming. In collaboration with the International Consortium for Emergency Contraception, the Council convened a 'Day of Dialogue' on EC to discuss the key research findings and to recommend strategic considerations for repositioning EC within the country's family planning program. This report captures the dialogue among the diverse participants, from the public and private sectors, local and international nongovernmental organizations, regulatory bodies and donor agencies, United Nations agencies, and advocacy organizations.
