Reports: COVID-related price hikes spur advocacy in Latin America

19th August 2021

RHSC/ForoLAC-funded research has found that opportunistic oral contraceptive price hikes have led to increases of at least 10-20% in Peru, Chile, Colombia, and Uruguay. As 60% of contraceptive funding is out of pocket, the impact on individual consumers is an unwelcome reality, especially given the negative impact of COVID on household incomes. Four partner organisations – PROMSEX Perú, Oriéntame Colombia, MYSU Uruguay and Corporación MILES de Chile – have designed an advocacy campaign to hold manufacturers accountable for excessive increases in these four countries. You can support the campaign on Twitter by following and engaging with the #ItsAboutSupplies hashtag. To read more about the reasearch and results, please download the following briefs (in Spanish):
