Date according to WHJ paper
from Santiago Times article on sluggish sales:
"Sales of Postinor 2, the contraceptive commonly known as "the morning after pill," have been slow during its first two weeks on the market. Grunenthal Pharmaceuticals, the company that produces the pill, reports that since its Sept. 12 launch only 100 pills have been sold. Market analysts speculate the controversy surrounding the pill's distribution has inhibited sales."
"The morning-after pill became legal in Chile in 2002 after a Supreme Court battle, and two-pill packages sell in pharmacies for $22. But the government says that price is beyond the reach of poorer women. It noted that 3,954 packages of the pills were sold over 12 months in five affluent Santiago districts, and just 344 in five poorer ones."
About 18,000 doses sold in pharmacies in 2004.
