In February, Power to Decide released the newest addition to their Advancing Contraceptive Access Toolkit: new interactive maps and tables synthesizing state-level telehealth policies, with a focus on those who can have an impact on contraceptive access. Telehealth has greatly expanded in the US since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and has proven to be a viable option for some folks to obtain contraception. Power to Decide’s polling data found that 77% of respondents agree that telehealth is a useful method to get birth control when in-person visits are not possible. Check out these new tools and sign up to receive a recording of their recent webinar about these resources and more.

During Period Poverty Awareness Week May 24-30, we will highlight charitable giving events, and feature a webinar on how you can get involved and why you should make it a priority to #endperiodpoverty. Hosted by Kimberly Clark, makers of Kotex®
