The Center for Information and Education on Health (CIEH) from the Ministry of Health with support from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) held advocacy events in Vilabouly and Sepon Districts in Savannaketh Province to mark the World Contraception Day 2012.

This year, Lao PDR celebrated World Contraception Day under the theme "Family Planning is not about limiting the number of children". The events focused on health promotion for mothers, children, families and young people from the communities.

During the event local authorities handed over contraceptives to young couples from the community.

Health services including Family planning counselling, antenatal care, Immunization, Nutrition counselling and distribution of supplements were provided to more than 1000 villagers from both districts.
