Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear colleagues

It is with great pleasure that we announce that the 13th Congress of the European Society of Contraception and Reproductive Health will take place in Lisbon from 28 to 31 May, 2014.

The main objective of Reproductive Health is that the population has a safe and satisfactory sexual life as well as the capacity to decide when and how often to have children. Despite the enormous progress in the access to safe contraception, it is estimated that more than 120 million women throughout the world wish to avoid pregnancy but do not practice effective contraception. There are many reasons for this: the healthcare services do not provide adequate support, information and methods of contraception are still not available in many places or, options are limited. 

Portugal was one of the last countries to legalize abortion and since then the mortality and morbidity regarding abortion is decreasing. We are an example of how a society can change.

At the Lisbon 13th ESC Congress whose theme is “Challenges in Sexual and Reproductive Health”, we propose to present and discuss the latest scientific information and knowledge regarding contraception as well as to promote the right of each individual’s access to adequate health services and to be informed of methods of family planning.

Lisbon is a city that combines the charms of olden times with modern state-of-the-art facilities. Here, you can enjoy visits to historical monuments, exciting cultural events, superb traditional cuisine amidst all the comforts of a modern city.

The proverbial warm and spontaneous hospitality of the city’s inhabitants together with its gentle climate will combine to offer you a very warm reception to what promises to be a highly productive and very enjoyable and successful meeting.

Save the date of this event and come to Lisbon.

Best wishes,
Teresa Bombas
