LARC Awareness Week raises awareness about the safest and most effective forms of birth control available today: long-acting reversible contraception (LARC).
LARCs like IUDs and the Implant have the potential to significantly reduce unintended pregnancies. While the use of LARCs is at an all-time high, women with the highest risk of unintended pregnancy are less likely to use them. We can do more to raise awareness and increase the use of LARCs.
For more information, please contact Sylvia Castillo, Essential Access Health's Manager of Public Policy + Community Engagement at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Awareness Week Activities
Throughout the week, partner organizations used social media and other communications channels to increase awareness about LARC among women, teens, and health care providers. Partners shared articles, facts, videos, and other helpful resources using the #LoveMyLARC hashtag.
Share Your Story
During LARC Awareness Week and through the year, use the #LARCAccess hashtag to share why you love your long-acting reversible contraception like the Implant and IUD.
