World Contraception Day takes place on September 26th every year. The annual worldwide campaign centers around a vision where every pregnancy is wanted. Launched in 2007, WCD’s mission is to improve awareness of contraception and to enable young people to make informed choices on their sexual and reproductive health.
#meet the ambassador
Kizanne James is one of 10 World Contraception Day Ambassadors, Women Deliver Young Leader, Chevening Scholar and young medical doctor from Trinidad and Tobago passionate about women’s health issues in particularly those related to sexual and reproductive health and rights. She is also an award winning youth leader with over 15 years’ experience in youth leadership and volunteering, advocate and public speaker building awareness of issues related to young people’s sexual health.
Young people are the best spokespeople for their own needs and powerful agents of change to transform policies, programs, and communities for the better. The project provides the global SRHR community with more insight into the realities of young people at the community, country, regional, and global levels and sparks a discussion on how to best meet young people’s needs.
● The World Contraception Day (WCD) Ambassadors Project equips young people with the skills they need to collect and share digital stories about young people’s sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and access to contraception in their home countries. It is sponsored by Women Deliver and Bayer.
● By equipping the Ambassadors with the tools they need to collect the stories of young people in their communities, the project integrates the power of technology, advocacy, and youth engagement to transform the landscape of contraception in their communities.
● By strengthening the knowledge and skills of young leaders and creating more opportunities for youth advocates to share their stories, ideas, and expertise, the project raises awareness of young people’s perspectives and needs.
