December Issue of Global Health: Science and Practice Released

According to the December issue of Global Health: Science and Practice, despite its apparent benefits, vasectomy demand among men has plateaued globally. The featured article suggests that the key to demand generation relies on vasectomy-specific messaging and broader social and behavior change communication (SBCC) efforts that engage men in family planning while emphasizing high-quality services and access to the supply side. Increasing vasectomy demand requires linking vasectomy to existing service delivery platforms. This includes mobile outreach, high-quality access to LARCs and female sterilization.

Other featured articles in the issue include:
