Explore reproductive health needs among newly incarcerated urban women
Describe the knowledge, attitudes and practices related to long term and emergency contraception
Discuss barriers to utilization of contraception
Advocate for policy change within Cook County Jail to provide EC at entry and contraception prior to release
Newly incarcerated women are at high risk for unintended pregnancy
Knowledge about EC and ability to access birth control services are both significantly limited
Other studies show that interventions during incarceration work (Clarke, et al)
During incarceration there is an opportunity to provide sex education - “teachable moment”
Intake screening to identify women at risk for unintended pregnancy during previous three to five days
Intake providers educated about use and provision of emergency contraception
Emergency contraception immediately available during Intake to jail for those women who desire it
