The International Medical Advisory Panel (IMAP) of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), just published its new Statement on emergency contraception (EC).

While the Statement is primarily intended to inform IPPF Member Associations, it also provides clarity on IPPF’s position with regard to EC, and can be a useful tool for other organizations, activists, researchers, and policy and decision makers working on EC.
