This event will examine the social, ethical, medical, policy and regulatory issues associated with all forms of fertility control. It will also address the role of disruptive technology, the shift to ex ante responses to reproductive choice and wider intersectional/ equality concerns surrounding fertility control. The event aims to bring together a range of interdisciplinary perspectives and stakeholders, including policy makers, parent groups, health providers, clinicians and a wide range of academics. The aim of the day will be to identify new issues, future challenges and possible solutions for policy makers.
The event is free but there are a limited number of spaces available. Please book early to secure your place at the conference.
