You can help make long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs) available to all Texas women with the help of a new toolkit developed by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission in conjunction with the Texas Department of State Health Services and the Texas district of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologist. LARCs provide a highly effective contraceptive option with high rates of patient satisfaction and continued use. Improving access to LARCs is a TMA priority.
The new toolkit offers suggestions and resources to make LARCs available to women throughout the reproductive cycle, including prior to the first pregnancy, during the postpartum period (both during the hospital stay and at the postpartum visit), and at any time when women receive family planning services.
For more information, call (800) 925-9126.
