About the course

Contraception can play an important part in a woman’s life. Modern contraceptives provide a wide array of options for the effective prevention of unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. The growing use of contraceptive methods has brought in improvements in health-related outcomes such as reduced maternal and infant mortality.
