THE US
VASECTOMY TOUR

The future of WVD depends on the enthusiastic participation of men willing to take the next step from Vasectomy acceptor to champion! 

Know the US VASECTOMY TOUR

2nd ANNUAL WVD
PROVIDER SUMMIT

The Summit is designed to provide information to vasectomy providers on timely and interesting issues. This year, again as a virtual event via Zoom, we will provide an update from experts on the latest studies on Vasectomy and Prostate Cancer, what’s on the horizon for Reversible Male Sterilization, and for medical students and residents, a breakout session with demonstrations of various vasectomy techniques. Other breakout sessions will address topics of interest to vasectomy providers in many countries.

4th ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM
ON VASECTOMY AND MALE ENGAGEMENT IN FAMILY PLANNING

While summit focuses primarily on specific issues relevant to doing vasectomies, the symposium is geared towards organizations, institutions, and individuals committed to increased male participation in family planning.

This year we have a panel discussing the future of male contraception, and another dedicated to ethical considerations for vasectomy programs. We’ll hear from several countries that have implemented programs or training during Covid.

24-HOUR GLOBAL CELEBRATION

November 18 – 19

from 5:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m

Starting in the morning in New Zealand on Friday, which is 5:00 p.m. (EST), we travel from time zone to time zone stopping to talk and interact with leaders in family planning, men getting vasectomies, women supporting their partners, activists for sexual and reproductive rights and heads of organizations and representatives from Ministries of Health. The objective is to acknowledge the great diversity of men and women who come together to celebrate World Vasectomy Day!

TRAINING MISSION IN BOLIVIA
NOVEMBER 01-07

Once again WVD and its loyal and dedicated vasectomy specialists are sharing their knowledge around the world. To address an increase in demand for vasectomy in Bolivia, WVD’s lead trainers, Dr. Michel Labrecque and Dr. John Curington, are heading to Laz Paz to train 4 doctors currently employed by MSI Bolivia (formerly known as Marie Stopes International, Bolivia).

With four trained providers, MSI Bolivia will be able to offer affordable vasectomies in the four most populated regions of the country.

WVD POP-UP CLINICS NOVEMBER 19-20

This year WVD is launching three vasectomy pop up clinics in New York City, Mexico City and Kampala, Uganda. Over time these clinics will not only generate revenue, but serve as Centers of Exellence to train future providers throughout the world.

WVD VASECTOMY LECTURE SERIES

In 2021, we launched our quarterly Vasectomy Update Webinar series. The dates for 2021 are March 20, June 12 and September 18. These are hour-long lectures presented by leaders in the field.

We are collaborating with l’Université Laval in Quebec to offer CME (Continuing Medical Education) credits per hour lecture and a trilingual certificate as proof of participation. For the WVD Summit in November, you can receive 3 credits.

You can receive a separate certificate for each Vasectomy Update Webinar, so while we welcome you to join all of the webinars, it is not obligatory.

WOMEN AND VASECTOMY

World Vasectomy Day recognizes the pivotal role women play in increasing male acceptance of vasectomy. In 2021, we held our first WVD International Women’s Day event.
