16th Congress of the European Society of Contraception and Reproductive Health 2021 Gent Belgium
16th Congress of the European Society of Contraception and Reproductive Health
25-28 May 2022, Ghent, Belgium
Challenging times, are we ready? Novel approaches to sexual and reproductive health
Challenging times indeed, we live in a “Flat World”, without boundaries, not from a physical nor from an emotional point of view. During this congres we have the great opportunity to focus on a number of themes which are in the heart of this evolution.
- The many faces of birth control with new views on Abortion and Contraception.
- “Sex in the city” with STI’s and innovative solutions in the pharmaceutical industry
- The social media and LGTB+ creating opportunities for further sexual liberation?
- The collateral damage of this rapidly changing world such as sexual violence and (dys)function.
- The “Flat World” has an impact on our thinking about values, ethics and policy making.
We wish you an inspiring journey during the 16th ESC Congress, 25-28 May 2022, Ghent, Belgium.
