In the third week of November, 8th World Vasectomy Day, the largest male-focused family planning event in history with over 1,000 providers in 30+ countries, takes the world on a historic 1 week vasectomy-athon. We will take 24 hours on November 20th to e-travel from country to country conversing with vasectomy providers, advocates for male involvement in family planning and the men who choose a vasectomy as an act of love. We will explore the current state of male involvement in family planning, learn about global efforts to make vasectomies accessible and celebrate men everywhere who have made the heroic decision to care for their families, communities and our planet.
It might seem odd to dedicate an entire day to vasectomies, but for Dr. Shu and the other 1,000 doctors participating in World Vasectomy Day on in the third week of November, it’s an important event that spreads awareness on the most effective but underutilized methods of contraception: the vasectomy.
With industrialization and modern medicine making it safer and easier to give birth and raise children, the world population has skyrocketed- current projections predict the world population will plateau at 11 billion. High population puts a strain on resources like food, medicine, and energy. In many areas of the world that are seeing rapid population growth, sexual education and medical resources have not caught up to other areas in society. Vasectomies are excellent for family planning in areas that are not well developed and do not have the resources that most of us take for granted.
Dr. Shu and the Procedure Clinic are proud to support WVD for a 8th straight year. Through our collaboration efforts, we hope to make vasectomies more accessible worldwide while helping more men explore family planning options.
World Vasectomy Day celebrates responsible men who rise up out of love for their partner, their family and our future. Please join us in supporting this movement.
