2013 Statement from the Bellagio Group on LARCs

In November 2013 at the International Conference on Family Planning in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, the Population Council convened the third meeting of international experts to discuss ways to expand contraceptive choice and accelerate progress toward the Millennium Development Goal of universal access to reproductive health services by increasing access to highly effective, long-acting, reversible contraceptives (LARCs). 

The Bellagio Group shares a commitment to leadership in increasing access and choice in contraceptive information, services and supplies. Participants include service providers, donor representatives, researchers, procurement specialists, manufacturers and public health specialists [including FIGO].
