Our Partners in Arizona
As leaders of the Arizona’s Postpartum Contraception Coalition, the Arizona Family Health Partnership is working to increase access to postpartum LARC in hospitals across Arizona. Their multi-pronged approach begins with collecting information from hospitals and insurance plans on barriers to offering LARC and receiving adequate reimbursement, using their findings to inform their efforts to address each of these challenges, and engaging LARC champions to tailor implementation efforts to their particular health system. NIRH supports its LARC partners by offering technical assistance as needed, linking their work to state and national trends and best practices, and lifting up their successes and lessons learned to share with the field.
In 2013, with support from the National Institute, NARAL Pro-Choice Arizona coordinated a policymaker bootcamp for legislators in Arizona to share pro-choice messaging and to strengthen efforts to defeat anti-choice legislation.
In 2010, the National Institute worked with the Arizona Family Planning Council to host a Policymaker Leadership Institute to develop community-based recommendations that would reduce health disparities and improve pregnancy outcomes in Phoenix.
