International Committee for Contraception Research
The International Committee for Contraception Research (ICCR), established by the Population Council in 1970, is a network of distinguished scientists and clinical investigators who conduct clinical trials to test the safety, efficacy, and acceptability of Council-developed products.
Members of the ICCR and their staffs at cooperating universities and clinics work closely with staff at the Population Council's Center for Biomedical Research in design of delivery systems, prototypes, and clinical protocols for products under development. The clinics are selected for their commitment to reproductive health care and their track records in the conduct of clinical trials involving contraceptive products.
The ICCR collaborates with Population Council staff members, as well as researchers at the World Health Organization, Family Health International, the National Institutes of Health, and the National Research Councils of the various countries in which ICCR members reside.
Currently ICCR members are from Australia, the Dominican Republic, France, Germany, India, Japan, Scotland, Sweden, and the United States.
