§ Mr. Horam
In support of the Government's "Health of the Nation" objective of reducing the level of unwanted pregnancy, the Health Education Authority is conducting a national campaign to raise awareness of emergency contraception among women aged 16 to 49. The Department has made available £600,000 to the HEA to run the campaign, which commenced on 25 June and runs until 24 July. It aims, through press and radio advertising, briefing for general practitioner surgeries and family planning clinics, and through posters and leaflets, to improve knowledge of emergency contraception, where it can be obtained and the time period in which it can be used. A 24-hour freephone helpline is available until the end of September.
