LISBON, PORTUGAL (31 May 2014) — This week, the Population Council presented new research at the 13th Congress of the European Society of Contraception and Reproductive Health. Presentations included a pharmacokinetic analysis of the Council’s investigational one-year contraceptive vaginal ring containing Nestorone® and ethinyl estradiol, and its investigational male contraceptive implant MENT®, as well as new approaches to “green contraception,” including strategies to ensure that future contraceptive technologies are both effective and protect the environment.
“The Population Council helped establish the field of long-acting, reversible contraception, and we are pleased to share new research at the 13th Congress of the European Society of Contraception and Reproductive Health,” said , Distinguished Scientist at the Population Council’s Center for Biomedical Research. “In a world where millions of men and women lack access to family planning information and services, the need for new contraceptive options has never been more urgent.”
