BASTOS, Luiza Lena; VENTURA, Miriam  and  BRANDAO, Elaine Reis. Between Biomedicine, Public Health and Rights: A Study About The International Consortium for Emergency Contraception’s Arguments to Promote Access to Emergency Contraception in “Developing Countries”. Cad. Pagu [online]. 2018, n.53, e185309.  Epub Oct 04, 2018. ISSN 0104-8333.

This is a documental and socio-anthropological research about the International Consortium for Emergency Contraception’s arguments (ICEC) to expand the Emergency Contraception (EC) access to women in “developing countries”. Three theoretical perspectives have been identified: the sanitary, the pharmaceutical and the one about the rights. This work allows us to reflect on Consortium’s meanings for ECs, like biomedical and sanitary devices that must be constituted as a right to women as they enable the reproductive autonomy exercise.

Keywords : Emergency Contraception; Sexuality; Gender; Reproductive Rights; Reproductive Health.
