Comprehensive, evidence-based, and ethical reproductive health care, including voluntary family planning services, is vital to supporting the health of individuals, families, and communities.
This spring, the National Health Care for the Homeless Council will facilitate a Learning Collaborative for health center staff across the care team on the provision of voluntary family planning services to people experiencing homelessness. These discussions will inform adapted clinical guidelines on reproductive health for unhoused individuals. Health centers are encouraged to invite care team members across disciplines to attend sessions of relevance to their work.
Topics covered will include prenatal care, pregnancy prevention, substance use and pregnancy, post-delivery and family care, and supporting patient decision making.
