Many women across the country are not offered or able to obtain the most effective forms of contraception, such as IUDs or implants, when they visit a health care center. This grant would provide unrestricted funds to support Upstream, a project of the New Venture Fund, aimed at developing strategies to increase access to the most effective methods of birth control. Building on the work of the Contraceptive Choice Project at Washington University and the Bixby Center at the University of California, San Francisco, Upstream plans to develop and test a new, enhanced training intervention at a diverse set of health centers and measure its impact in a six-site pilot project.
