In Malta: women´s groups demand access to EC

In June 2016, the Maltese NGO Women’s Rights Foundation (WRF) filed a judicial protest on behalf of 102 women, requesting that emergency contraception is licensed, available, and accessible locally. The Minister of Health announced that the issue will be discussed at the Parliament Social Affairs committee in the coming months. Despite being a member of the European Union, Malta does not have a dedicated EC product registered nor available in the local market.
