Center for Reproductive Rights releases fact sheet on contraceptive access in the European Union

The Center for Reproductive Rights recently released a fact sheet titled
Access to Contraceptives in the European Union: Human Rights, Barriers and Good Practices,” which outlines different barriers to access in the region and highlights some examples considered best practices. Although states are obligated under international law to provide women with access to a full range of contraceptives and contraceptive information, and although most countries in the European Union include contraceptives in their public health and social policies, access still remains an issue in some Member States. As the Center explains, “this factsheet is intended to serve as a resource for those interested in understanding the human rights laws and policies, barriers, and good practices relating to contraceptive access in the European Union.”
