WORLD VASECTOMY DAY IN MEXICO!
On November 17th, World Vasectomy Day, the largest male-focused family planning event in history with over 1,200 providers in 50+ countries, takes the world on a historic 24-hour vasectomy-athon organized out of our headquarters in Mexico. We will 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. WVD kicks off at 5:00 p.m. on November 16 with a joint ceremony taking place in Mexico City and on the island nation of Kiribati (where it will be 10 a.m. on Friday, November 17th). With conversations, live vasectomies and dozens of films, and in partnership with DKT Mexico, DKT International and the Centro Nacional de Equidad de Genero y Salud Reproductiva (National Center for Gender Equity and Reproductive Health), 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. Join us!
On November 19th, we will celebrate with an event at the Revolution Monument, one of Mexico’s most solemn locations, where we will be doing upwards of 100 live vasectomies, hosting film screenings, sponsoring a lucha libre fight and honoring the participating doctors and vasectomy acceptors. The Sunday event will run from 11am-6pm Mexico City time and is free and open to the public.

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
