COMMUNICATIONS NEWS: FPA: easy access to morning-after pill will eliminate fears

The FPA will use this year's Contraceptive Awareness Week to call for emergency contraceptive pills to be made available in advance.

It says the 'access through the bathroom cabinet' approach is an ideal way to raise awareness and end fears of contraception among women who are worried about their chosen method of birth control failing, or who cannot easily access emergency contraception.

The FPA will also use the week, which runs between 9-15 February, to launch an updated information leaflet designed to educate women about the morning-after pill and recent changes to medical procedures for taking emergency contraception. "There's still a huge knowledge gap about emergency contraception in general," said Karen Brewer, the charity's director of communications.
