The 2015 Contraceptive Technology Update (CTU) Contraception Survey monitors contraceptive trends and family planning issues among readers. Results were tallied and analyzed by AHC Media in Atlanta, which publishes CTU and dozens of other healthcare newsletters and sourcebooks and presents webinars and conferences.
