OHA has convened a cross-agency work group to comprehensively address the issue of unintended pregnancy and develop a strategic state plan for reducing unintended pregnancy and improving pregnancy planning and spacing. Providing technical assistance to health systems, CCOs and clinics is one strategy to increase effective contraceptive use, address disparities in unintended pregnancies and improve women’s health, pregnancy and birth outcomes.
