About the LARC Program
The Long-Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) Program at the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists works to lower the unintended pregnancy rate in the US by connecting providers, patients, and the public with the most up-to-date information and resources on LARC methods and increasing access to the full range of contraceptive methods.
In working toward that mission, the LARC Program focuses on accomplishing the following activities:
- Create, revise, and review clinical and educational materials with our LARC Work Group of expert advisors
- Advocate on behalf of providers and patients to ensure access to LARC methods
- Create educational and practice support tools to improve contraceptive practice quality and efficiency
- Advocate for reimbursement and coverage of LARC methods
- Develop and provide educational outreach materials and training activities
- Build relationships with family planning colleagues and organizations
- Provide updates on the LARC Program with our E-newsletter and through other media
- Conduct research on LARC knowledge, attitudes, and practice patterns
