New Federal Pharmacy Chamber recommendations for EC in Germany

In January 2015, the Federal Union of German Associations of Pharmacists (Bundesapothekerkammer, or BAK) issued Rezeptfreie Abgabe von Notfallkontrazeptiva („Pille danach“), a tool to guide pharmacists when providing emergency contraception without prescription. This tool includes recommendations for action, documents for consultation and  a curricula, which can be accessed here (available in German, only).

Since April 2015 women can buy emergency contraceptive pills directly from pharmacies, without prescription.  For further information, see Germany´s country profile in our website.
