In Canada, half of all pregnancies are unintended. Single working mothers, women living in poverty, with mental illness, or in rural and remote locations can struggle to space their pregnancies—with consequences for their own and their children’s long term development. Accessing information about effective contraception is difficult and many are unable to pay for the methods they would choose if they knew about their options.
Dr. Wendy Norman, CIHR-PHAC Chair in Family Planning Research, is leading innovative research into the contraceptive needs of women in BC and throughout Canada. A Women’s Health Survey is currently underway across BC. This door-to-door survey will provide critical information about supporting equitable access to family planning knowledge, services and methods for the average woman.
To determine how to best support women in the most vulnerable situations, Dr. Norman needs your help to make sure the survey reaches out to as many women as possible. Every dollar you donate will be matched, to double your impact to ensure women across BC have access to the contraceptive information and methods they need.
