Sruthi Chandrasekaran Created a Research Paper and Website to Advocate for Emergency Contraception in India

share

Sruthi Chandrasekaran received a $5,000 seed grant from Women Deliver — made possible by Johnson & Johnson — to implement “Emergency Contraception in India: Use, Trends, and Policy Implications,” a research project that illuminated how women in India use emergency contraception (EC) in India, in order to make sure its provision is effective and accessible. Through her project, Sruthi developed a final report, an infographic, and a website to support the dissemination of the research findings, which has been shared with young people and other key stakeholders in Delhi and Mumbai. The report points to key research gaps that exist and the need for improving access to EC, safe abortion and comprehensive sexuality education, so that advocacy and research areas can move forward and build upon this project.
