The New York City LARC Access Taskforce launched in January 2013 as a two - year initiative to address a need expressed by the family planning provider community in New York City-to share information, resources, and strategy. It is the first municipal-level taskforce working to facilitate citywide, multidisciplinary coordination around LARC access.
In April 2014, a website was launched to serve as the online Community of Practice, and includes a centralized database for LARC-related resources and an associated listserv and monthly newsletter.
More than 50 medical providers, educators, administrators, public health professionals, reproductive health advocates, and researchers from more than 25 New York City-based organizations currently serve on the Taskforce. The Taskforce’s central activities are concentrated in workgroups comprised of voluntary members that meet regularly.
