Take Control Initiative
In 2010, the George Kaiser Family Foundation initiated TCI to improve access to contraception by providing education and outreach for all methods and free clinical services for IUDs and the arm implant. TCI has expanded clinical services to include all contraception, ensuring women and families have sustained, equitable access to the method that is best for them. The choice of when and if to have children is associated with securing better women’s health and pregnancy outcomes. TCI drives this change by breaking down social, economic, and clinical barriers to access with a goal of promoting health equity.
The Take Control Initiative also offers educational workshops to health care providers, social service workers, as well as people interested in participating in the program.
