Reproductive Health Care through the Eyes of Latina Women: Insights for Providers (2012)

Latinas are experiencing high rates of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), teen childbearing, and unintended pregnancy. This report presents nine recommendations for sexual and reproductive health clinics and providers to increase young Latina women’s access to reproductive health services. The recommendations are based on findings derived from 14 focus groups conducted by Child Trends in three cities in the United States with young adult Latina women (18-24 years-old) and with reproductive health care and social service providers serving large Latina populations.
