Reproductive Health Reproductive Health
Reproductive health is a state of complete physical, mental and
social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity, in all
matters relating to the reproductive system and to its functions and processes.
Reproductive health implies that people are able to have a satisfying and safe
sex life and that they have the capability to reproduce and the freedom to
decide if, when and how often to do so.
We mobilize, train, and support clinicians to make sexual and
reproductive health care accessible to everyone.
WE FOCUS ON ONE KEY
Contraceptive is basic primary health care for everyone.
Contraception (Birth control methods)
Birth control, also known as contraception, anticonception,
and fertility control, is the use of methods or devices to prevent unintended
pregnancy. Birth control has been used since ancient times, but effective and
safe methods of birth control only became available in the 20th century.
Planning, making available, and using human birth control is called family
planning. The type of birth control you use depends on
your health, your desire to have children now or in the future, and your need
to prevent sexually transmitted infections. Some cultures limit or discourage access to birth control
because they consider it to be morally, religiously, or politically
- There are many different types of contraception, but not all types are appropriate for all situations. The most appropriate method of birth control depends on an individual's overall health, age, frequency of sexual activity, number of sexual partners, desire to have children in the future, and family history of certain diseases.
