Ibis Reproductive Health

For Support Of The Oral Contraceptives Over-the-Counter Working Group

Overview
Although the reasons why women do not consistently use contraception when they want to avoid pregnancy are complex, difficulties in access are a significant factor for many. Some of these access problems would be alleviated if birth control pills were available over the counter. This grant would provide continuing support to the Oral Contraceptives Over-the-Counter Working Group, a coalition of reproductive health organizations and individuals, led by Ibis Reproductive Health. Although the Working Group’s goal of over-the-counter status for pills is ambitious, the Group has slowly but steadily raised awareness about its proposal and stimulated attention from policymakers through publication of research about the proposal in professional journals and general media.
