Fertility and Reproductive Health

     Following the passage of the Neuwirth law (1967) on contraception and the Veil law legalising voluntary termination of pregnancy (1974), Ined’s mission has been to monitor changes in fertility behaviour and contraceptive practices.

In this context, since the early 1970s, surveys have regularly been conducted, sometimes as part of a bilateral or trilateral collaboration between Ined, INSERM, and INSEE.

A new survey on fertility and reproductive health will be conducted by 2025, which is approximately 15 years after the last survey on this topic. This new survey will build on the aforementioned previous surveys, while also responding to new scientific and societal challenges.[1]
