African American Women Evolving (AAWE) conducted a series of surveys in 2002 and 2003 to assess access to emergency contraception (EC). This presentation will report on the findings which include inconsistencies in access to EC and the need for greater education of pharmacy personnel. The presenter will discuss cultural competency training for pharmacy personnel, the pros and cons of EC being over-the-counter, and the need to forge strategic alliances with other health activists such as HIV/AIDS advocates while awaiting the FDA's decision.
