— Leading on Opportunity, Child & Family Stability Report
Upstream North Carolina is a multi-year initiative launched by Upstream USA to ensure all patients have access to the full range of birth control methods in a single visit by providing training and technical assistance to health centers.
Publicly supported family planning centers in North Carolina met 27% of North Carolina women’s need for contraceptive services and supplies in 2013.
Upstream is working to expand opportunity by reducing unplanned pregnancy and improving outcomes for parents, children, and society.

“I had absolutely no idea of how involved Upstream would become in the inner workings of our health center, how connected they would become to our staff and providers and to the mission of the center, and how they would keep such a high energy level for the goals all the way through.”
