We provide a robust library of content to help educate the general public and empower male contraception advocates.
Male Contraceptive Initiative is committed to providing resources to the general public and research community. This includes market and scientific reports, a listing of conferences and events, news about male contraception, and other resources designed to help make the field of male contraception more accessible. Through these efforts, we hope to provide fair and accurate information that is engaging and thought-provoking.
International Market Research Study
Outsight4Development, Alstonia Impact, and DesireLine conducted a robust market research study across 7 distinct markets around the world to develop an understanding of the demand for male contraception, men’s interest in and preferences for novel forms of male birth control, and the level of trust that female partners have in their male partners to use birth control. Funding for the male respondent research was supported by funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The Male Contraceptive Initiative provided funding to cover female partners of male respondents.
Findings from this nationally/regionally representative study show that there is significant interest for novel male contraceptives among men and women. Men have interest in trying a new male contraceptive within a year of its availability, and higher interest in trying a new male contraceptive at some point. Female partners surveyed have high trust in men taking contraception, and have high interest in male partners taking contraception.
Male Reproduction & Contraception
Knowing how a man’s body operates is a critical first step to understanding how the next generation of male contraceptive methods will function. In an effort to make this information more accessible, we have developed primers to introduce and explain some of the key terms and processes related to male reproduction and male contraception.
