In-order to secure a future where every pregnancy is wanted, the new generation should be able to make an informed decision about their reproductive health rights. This is only achievable when everyone takes the responsibility. World Contraception Day takes place on September 26th every year. It is a worldwide campaign to improve awareness of contraception use among women of reproductive age.
