Long-Acting Reversible Contraception Crucial to Meeting Unmet Need Goals by 2020: Key Papers From the 2016 International Conference on Family Planning
Publication Date: 08/22/2016

Global Health: Science and Practice (GHSP) is pleased to announce publication of a special supplement, “Long-Acting Reversible Contraception Crucial to Meeting Unmet Need Goals by 2020: Key Papers From the 2016 International Conference on Family Planning," in collaboration with the Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Comprised of 11 articles presented at the 2016 International Conference on Family Planning held in Nusa Dua, Indonesia, the supplement focuses on the benefits and challenges of delivering LARC services and addresses a range of cross-cutting topics, from mentoring, supervision, and task sharing to quality of care, vouchers, postpartum family planning, and family planning service delivery in fragile environments.

According to James D. Shelton, editor-in-chief of GHSP, and Anne E. Burke, co-guest editor of the supplement, “This special issue of GHSP provides testimony to the remarkable rise in the popularity of LARCs … . In the context of availability of a wide range of other methods, provision of LARCs can be the linchpin in the effort to attain FP2020 goals to meet the contraceptive needs of millions of people.”
