UK: Sainsbury distribution of the contraceptive pill supported by government
Britain's second largest supermarket group, Sainsbury's, has received the full support of the Department of Health in its planned involvement in a pilot scheme to hand out free morning-after pills to under 16-year-olds. Sainsbury's will offer the emergency contraception pill to girls in five areas with high teenage pregnancy rates. The areas in the initiative, which is part of a wider programme to reduce Britain's teenage pregnancy rate, the highest in western Europe, are Cardiff and Bridgend in South Wales, Fallowfield and Sale in Greater Manchester, and Bristol.
