About the Program
Contraceptive R&D is an area that students and early-career researchers are often unaware of as a potential career path. As a result, there are very few contraceptive developers and researchers globally, particularly in low- and middle-income countries.
Mentorship and youth engagement can help increase interest in, knowledge of, and opportunities to participate in the field of contraceptive R&D among students, young professionals, and early-career researchers.
