The purpose of this study is to measure whether a training and education intervention for clinic staff and young women aged 18-25 on contraceptive methods, including intrauterine devices (IUDs) and the implant, will result in greater contraceptive knowledge and access among students in community colleges.


In the US, young women aged 18-25 years have limited knowledge of contraception or pregnancy risks and often experience challenges in accessing reproductive health care. They have little familiarity with the full range of contraceptives, particularly long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) including the IUD and implant. This campus-level, multiple component intervention provides evidence-based contraceptive training and education to clinic staff and students in this age group attending community colleges in California and Texas.
