Contraceptive Access for Highly Vulnerable Youth
Advocates is working in three cities in the United States, Atlanta, Tucson and Washington D.C. to design and test family planning service delivery models that improve uptake of contraception by highly vulnerable youth. In Atlanta, Advocates is working with refugee youth, in Tucson with youth who are in drug treatment or other government agencies, and in Washington D.C., staff is working to improve pediatrician’s willingness and ability to provide contraceptives to the teens they serve. Staff provides resources, training, technical assistance and evaluation consultation to assess the impact of these models and their potential to be scaled.
