New Findings on Contraceptives

 This report on new findings in contraception research can help program managers, providers, teachers, and communicators to:  update colleagues and students on recent research findings; draw attention to the new, longer "grace period" for DMPA reinjection recently recommended by WHO, and advocate clear and prominent changes in program policy and training; answer concerns about ready access to emergency contraceptive pills; adopt and use checklists that qualify more women to use IUDs; recommend LAM to women with HIV who are breastfeeding; offer a wide range of contraceptive methods to women with HIV; check whether program guidelines reflect important research findings that have long been neglected in many places.
