14TH CONGRESS – 2ND GLOBAL CONFERENCE OF EUROPEAN SOCIETY OF CONTRACEPTION & REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH (ESC)
Hotel Ibis BudgetBASEL, SWITZERLAND Visit the Venue to read more
The title of the congress 'From molecular biology to social science and politics' is not only that of our programme, it is also a promise and a challenge. Our wish is to respond to the multi-dimensional aspects of contraception and reproductive health in general because we firmly believe that one of the most important contributing factors to women's health is the right for all women everywhere on this globe:
to decide when to have a child and how many children to have, by accessing contraceptive methods that meet their needs;
to have a safe and protected pregnancy and delivery by accessing adequate obstetric care;
to enjoy their sexual life and be protected from violence and abuse by secure sexual rights for women and access to sexual health care.
To make this dream come true, professionals of very different and distinct specialities must work together, exchange ideas, discuss and take action. This congress will provide the opportunity to create and maintain multidisciplinary networks between individuals, organisations and continents.
Basel is a small but very cosmopolitan city in the heart of Europe at the border of three countries. You will find it has international flair, an impressive Old Town along the banks of the river Rhine, and many museums and places of historical interest, including a very old university. There are also many small pubs, brasseries and gourmet restaurants in which to enjoy the excellent food of the region. If you have one or two days' free time, famous tourist spots such as the Black Forest in Germany, the Vosges in France and, of course, the Swiss lakes and mountains are nearby and easily accessible.
We look forward to welcoming you to Basel in May 2016.
Johannes Bitzer, Congress President

All abstracts will be evaluated and those accepted will be published in a Supplement of the European Journal of Contraception and Reproductive Health Care. As only a limited number of oral communications can be accepted, authors are asked to indicate on their form whether they wish their abstract to be considered ONLY for oral or poster presentation or for either option.
