    Curtin University is part of an international study on the impact of the COVID-19 measures on sexual and reproductive health and wellbeingcoordinated by the Academic Network on Sexual and Reproductive Health Policies (ANSER) and researchers at the University of North Carolina. 


    COVID-19 measures are likely to have an impact on sexual behaviors, reproductive health, and social life across the world. Has contraceptive use declined? Is there more intimate partner violence? How did the focus on COVID-19 in health facilities effect access to essential reproductive health services? 

    To get a better understanding of the effects of COVID-19 measures, an online survey is currently rolling out in more than 30 countries by as many academic institutions. Analyses will be made on national, regional, and global levels and results will be translated into policy recommendations. More information on the study can be found on the I-SHARE website: https://ishare.web.unc.edu/
