In Nov 2020, global stakeholders convened for an online technical consultation on contraceptive-induced menstrual changes (CIMCs). Since then, FHI 360 has convened a global, multidisciplinary CIMC Task Force to draft research and learning agendas focused on CIMCs around areas of particular interest, including: 1) measurement, 2) contraceptive R&D and biomedical research, 3) social-behavioral & user preferences research, and 4) programmatic research.
The CIMC Global Research and Learning Agenda (RLA) was launched during a dissemination event on November 16, 2021. This RLA provides guidance for researchers, product developers, health care providers, program implementors, advocates, policymakers, and funders interested in exploring and contributing to a collective understanding of the issue of CIMCs. The recording of the dissemination meeting is available here and the full CIMC Research & Learning Agenda can be accessed here.
