February 2022. Since 2012, the European Consortium for Emergency Contraception monitors emergency contraception (EC) availability and accessibility in Europe, and maintains a country-by-country database. This open-access database is regularly updated thanks to the collaboration of numerous partners and local experts to whom we want to express our deepest gratitude.

ECEC now publishes a new fact sheet that summarizes EC availability in Europe up to December 2021 based on this data. The fact sheet covers all European countries expect Iceland, Kyrgyzstan, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Montenegro, Republic of Kosovo, San Marino, Turkmenistan and the Vatican City State. The previous edition of this summary was published in April 2016.

If you want more detailed information about a specific country, visit the country-by-country section of our website. Please contact us at ecec [at] eeirh [dot] org if you believe that information about your country is inaccurate or outdated. This fact sheet can be found online at the Publications section of our website.
