Contraception – More Affordable for the Poorest

Former US president Clinton just announced that the pharmaceutical company Bayer is going to lower the price of modern contraceptives by a healthy 50%. In return, the Norwegian, British, US and Swedish governments agreed to buy the pill for their family plan programs.

Brightnews! This agreement will prevent 30 million unplanned births, 30’000 maternal and 280’000 children deaths. It’s therefore really very positive news for many people that couldn’t afford modern contraceptives.
