Increasing Awareness of Contraception
Beyond the Pill partners with health and educational organizations to educate young people about their contraceptive options, including IUDs and the implant.
To promote education, we offer:
- Educational tools. We provide patient and student educational tools at low or no cost. These colorful, engaging materials and resources are specially designed for adolescents and young adults and include videos, posters, and counseling tools for clinic staff. We are developing new educational tools- sign up for our newsletter to be notified when they're ready!
- Educational presentations. We design educational presentations tailored to specific audiences including patients, college students, high school students, and peer health educators. These presentations focus on increasing young people’s awareness of their contraceptive options and dispelling myths and misinformation.
- Training for educators and health staff. We provide CME-accredited training to educators, outreach staff, health center staff, and clinicians. These trainings focus on best practices in contraceptive care, education and counseling techniques, IUD placement and removal skills, and reducing barriers to service provision.
- Technical assistance. We offer on-going technical assistance to promote awareness and access to the full range of contraceptive methods, including curriculum development, support of educational and outreach activities, strengthening of referral networks, and reduction of logistical barriers to provision.
