Increasing Access to Contraception

Approximately 19 million women in the United States need government funded contraception and live in areas where contraceptive deserts are extremely common. Insurance barriers, such as cost and denial of coverage are a major cause of this problem. I propose an intervention that consists of of a website linking women to free or low cost contraception without requiring a physician's visit or prescription, along with an informational campaign to raise awareness of the website.
