Knowledge and Use of Emergency Contraception: A Multicountry Analysis 28-05-2015
This study, published in International Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health, June 2014
examined knowledge and use of emergency contraception in 45 countries using population-based survey data. In every country surveyed but Colombia, fewer than 50% of women have ever heard of EC and fewer than 6% have ever used it. In general, the more educated women were or the wealthier they were, the more likely they were to have known about or used emergency contraception.
