Covid-19 Update: We're open for a range of services during the Level 4 lockdown. Use the Ask for an Appointment to get a phone appointment with us during this time. Please note that we will not be offering phone appointments over the Easter Weekend (10-13 April). 

We will be able to help with: emergency contraception prescriptions, contraceptive pill repeats (and some contraceptive pill starts) and abortion information.

If you are due for your depo provera jab or for your implant to be changed, we will give you a prescription for the pill until we're able to do face-to-face appointments again. 

If you have an appointment booked with us in the next month, we will be in touch with you to reschedule.

Due to infection control requirements we are unable to provide any face-to-face consultations in our clinics during the lockdown.

Pacific Youth: Their Rights, Our Future

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

International News

On 5 December NZPPD launched a new report on adolescent sexual and reproductive health in the Pacific at the New Zealand parliament.

The report, Pacific Youth: Their Rights, Our Future is based on the findings of the Open Hearing on Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in the Pacific, which the group held in June this year.

Governor Julie Soso, the first female governor to be elected in Papua New Guinea, and youth advocate Julianne Wickham from Solomon Islands were invited by NZPPD to speak at the launch, and both highlighted the difficulties young people face in their respective countries to accessing sexual and reproductive health care and services.

The report presents NZPPD’s recommendations on what immediate action needs to be taken to ensure adolescents can realise their sexual and reproductive rights.

The group’s work in the coming year will focus on encouraging the implementation of the recommendations in the region.
