About the LARC Program

ACOG's Long-Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) Program 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.

We work to:

  • 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
