Patients surveyed say that they feel empowered to make their own decisions about which birth control method is right for them
Upstream conducts patient surveys at Upstream-trained health centers to confirm that patients are in charge of choosing their own method, that they feel listened to by their providers and that they feel no pressure to choose any method of birth control. Our results affirm one of our central goals: patients should be empowered to make their own choices about the birth control method that is right for them.
