Session: Lessons Learned and Shaping Future Directions in Reproductive Health
4251.0: Tuesday, December 13, 2005: 2:30 PM-4:00 PM
Lessons Learned and Shaping Future Directions in Reproductive Health
This session will examine women's access to reproductive health care to identify domestic and international trends affecting how services should be tailored. We will examine the full range of access to care: * how networks respond to women's need to access care (the effect of factors such as income inequality in the relationship between social capital and teen pregnancy) * messages targeted specifically to user's situations such as pill re-starters who have previously stopped because of side effects who are then at higher risk of subsequent discontinuation * mechanisms for integrating HIV services into sexual and reproductive health programs and the need for a systematized integration process * access trends in the US (more agencies adopting policies to improve access, proportion of family planning agencies also offering primary care services to clients increasing)
Learning Objectives: To describe ways in which women's access to reproductive health care services have improved
