• Emergency Contraception in National Essential Medicines Lists Worldwide Report 07-08-2014

April 2014 Report on 176 Countries

A number of countries have shared their national EMLs on the WHO website; others have been shared via personal correspondence. Those that include ECPs are listed in this report, with the year of publication; two countries specify a different method of EC, based on taking a higher dose of regular oral contraceptives. The countries whose EMLs are available but do not include EC are also listed. However, the fact that a country does not include EC in its EMLs does not mean there is no product registered or on the market. For those countries with no EC listed in its EML, we have listed whether or not EC is available locally.
