In July 2013, the Institute for Reproductive Health at Georgetown University (IRH) held a technical consultation on fertility awareness and its impact on sexual and reproductive health (SRH) outcomes. The consultation was informed by a review of the existing literature on fertility awareness which was compiled into a White Paper (Appendix B). The key objectives of the Fertility Awareness Technical Consultation were to:

  1. Define fertility awareness,
  2. Assess the evidence of the effect of fertility awareness on SRH attitudes and behaviors across the life course,
  3. Explore how fertility awareness could contribute to SRH program goals, and
  4. Identify the knowledge gaps that could be addressed by future research.
