Walk-In Contraceptive Services

The Defense Health Agency developed this digital toolkit to help you communicate with active duty service members and eligible beneficiaries about Walk-in Contraceptive Services. The toolkit gives you the information and resources to conduct a local education campaign to educate service members and patients in your geographic area about the new Walk-In Contraceptive Service areas when it comes online. 

Background

Walk-in Contraceptive Services are a resource within a military hospital or clinic where patients can get comprehensive contraceptive care in a single visit. This is a place where you can discuss your reproductive questions, goals, and challenges, and your contraception needs with a medical provider. Together you can decide how to your reproductive needs. This service is designed as a convenient single visit to reduce referrals and multiple appointments. 

The goal of Walk-in Contraceptive Services is to support the overall wellbeing of the force and optimize warrior readiness and pregnancy planning. Walk-in Contraceptive Services include the provision of full scope, contraception related care for all active duty service members and for eligible beneficiaries capable of becoming pregnant (e.g., women, transgender males, non-binary individuals, etc.) on a space-available basis.
