New EC guidelines in Portugal

In July 2015, the Portuguese Society of Contraception released Recomendações sobre Contraceção de Emergência, a guide for emergency contraception provision. The recommendations are based on WHO guidelines as well as ECEC’s guidelines. The guide will officially be presented at the Society’s annual meeting in September 2015. The Society is already working closely with pharmacists to strengthen their capacity to provide high-quality EC counselling and services.
