FCI works for emergency contraception access in Latin America, Caribbean

November 2010

FCI,as host agency for the International Consortium for Emergency Contraception (ICEC), coordinates the International Legal Advisory Committee on Emergency Contraception. This global committee organized a technical meeting in early November 2010 in Lima, Peru, to address current legal challenges to access to emergency conception (EC) in the Latin America and Caribbean region. The meeting, convened by ICEC and the Latin American Consortium on Emergency Contraception (CLAE), included lawyers, advocates, and reproductive health experts. Participants conferred on regional strategies for defending and improving EC access, and on plans to ensure proactive and coordinated action to address future legal challenges.

The meeting was made possible by generous support from the United Nations Population Fund—UNFPA.
