WELCOME COLOMBIA TO THE WORLD VASECTOMY DAY FAMILY!
In early April, WVD traveled to Colombia to explore bringing our headquarters there for either 2018 or 2019. We were hosted by Profamilia, an IPPF affiliate, and with over 20 clinics nationwide, Colombia’s most important provider of family planning services. It was to be our first trip to Colombia and we were excited, as it’s a place we've long wanted to visit.
From the first year, Profamilia has supported World Vasectomy Day. In 2014, eighteen of their doctors joined us in our first vasectomy-athon, and together they did over 100 vasectomies. Their vasectomy program is one of the most advanced in all of Latin America, and in fact, the first vasectomy every done in South America was performed in Colombia. Legend has it that the doctor even did his own procedure!

OUR WORK, OUR PASSION
We believe men worldwide are ready to make the choice to do right by themselves, their families and our future by becoming engaged in conversations about family planning.
World Vasectomy Day is about starting these conversations, and helping men and their families become more informed about their choices. We create alliances with governments, organizations, and individuals to help train providers, educate families, and deliver services to men who are stepping up for their loved ones.LEARN MORE
