Dear Forum members.
May you kindly explain " incentivising inappropriate use".
I read it many times in different newspapers which is regarding contraceptive medicine.
Kindly elaborate this specific phrase.
Thank you so much.

Depending on the actual context, inappropriate use of contraceptives may be promoted, or encouraged, given reason without justification or need.
Much depends on what is considered "appropriate" but incentivising means giving a reward for something done, and if that is something inappropriate
it is obviously wrong.

_______________

Some manufacturers label their contraceptive product as an emergency contraception. They opine that if the emergency contraception were cheaper, it would become a default contraceptive. The use of an emergency contraception as a default contraceptive is considered inappropriate by these manufacturers/pharmacists. Hence, they advocate keeping the product so expensive that the high cost discourages 'inappropriate' use. According to them, the emergency contraceptive should be taken after a professional healthcare consultation which entails examining an individual’s full medical history and any potential drug interactions. Such a consultation also helps the pharmacist offer important sexual healthcare advice to women and prevents the emergency contraception from being misused or overused. It is useful to know that there are several women groups who feel that lowering the cost of emergency contraception would not “incentivise inappropriate use”. They advocate lowering the cost significantly as is the case in many countries such as France.

"To incentivise" means to motivate or encourage (someone) to do something. "Incentivising inappropriate use" means motivating/encouraging the users to indulge in inappropriate use by using the emergency contraception as a default contraceptive without proper professional healthcare consultation.

sureshot is right.

But understanding,""Incentivising inappropriate use" is difficult to understand. It defeats the purpose. Some other 'slogan' should be adopted.

I am a layman.

I had no idea what "emergency contraception" was till I googled.

It is the "morning-after" pill that may be needed for several reasons. But it is not as effective in preventing pregnancy as using contraception at the time of sex, nor will it ever prevent disease.

So no wonder they don't want incentives given for it to be used routinely or inappropriately.
