Dear Family Planning Champion,
Amidst all the talk of how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted family planning access and use, have you ever thought about how exactly researchers collect this critical data despite the obstacles imposed by the pandemic itself? If you’re a researcher, you’ve likely had to make modifications to data collection plans or wondered what you could do differently.
The International Union for the Scientific Study of Population (IUSSP) promotes the scientific study of population and provides learning exchanges for demographers around the world. Tune into their upcoming webinar for new research on safe data collection measures for contraceptive access and utilization within the COVID-19 context.
