Iran ends provision by state of contraceptives and vasectomies

25th June 2020

In an attempt to increase falling birth rates, the Iranian government has ended the provision of contraceptives and vasectomies.

The average number of children born to Iranian women is 1.7, which is below the 2.2 required to sustain the population. Access to family planning services has been reduced for at least a decade.

This article could be used for the Families and Households unit (demographics), as well as a broader discussion about the role of men and women in the household (gender roles).
