provision of family planning services, the impact of unplanned pregnancies is still high. For example, the average cost per abortion in the United Kingdom in 2003 was GBP469, which represented a total cost of GBP38.2m for that year.(7)

In 2008, the campaign aims to educate young people about making informed choices on contraception under the campaign motto 'Your body, your life, your choice'. Seventy countries are expected to participate in World Contraception Day 2008. Different activities are taking place around the world to mark World Contraception Day. In Europe, these include educational events at schools, colleges and universities, internet quizzes, charity concerts, roadshows involving workshops for young people and awareness activities in nightclubs and discos and via the internet and mobile phone technology. In addition, a healthcare professional campaign has been launched to ensure that doctors, nurses and family planning clinics are fully aware of World Contraception Day. Healthcare professionals will be provided with a number of informative educational materials to provide during consultations, including a contraception guide featuring important information on how and where to access contraception.
