The Population Council’s Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) is proud to announce the launching of a dedicated EC website in Spanish, made possible through funds provided by the US Agency for International Development. Please visit us at

Currently the website is set up to provide general emergency contraception information with examples from Mexican campaigns and current EC news to a Spanish-speaking audience, and then link internet users to other sites where more or different EC information is posted. While most of the Council’s EC activities are Mexico-specific, our intention is that soon internet users all over Latin America and the Caribbean will be able to access linked pages with more explicit information that lists the pill brands appropriate for EC use available in each LAC country, as well as the names of individual clinics equipped to give out supplies and local spokespersons and workshops to deliver information and appropriate training in the method.
