Centro Paraguayo de Estudios de Población
The Centro Paraguayo de Estudios de Poblacion (CEPEP) delivers high quality family planning services right across the country from clinics which are networked with government clinics, other agencies, and hundreds of private physicians. The services cover maternal and child care, uterine and breast cancer prevention, colposccopy, PAP smears, and diagnostic facilities such as sonography and laboratory testing.
There is a community distribution service which, thanks to the dedicated work of hundreds of volunteers, distributes contraceptives in hard-to-reach rural areas, and in vulnerable urban communities. CEPEP runs an active education programme which sets out to challenge misconceptions and ignorance regarding contraception and family planning.
