IAFP Reproductive Health Overview
In anticipation of changes to reproductive health access in Idaho and across the United States, the IAFP formed a Reproductive Health Committee, made up of board members and members to prepare for these changes. See below for the latest updates to reproductive health access in Idaho, clinical resources, and legal resources for providers.

IAFP Reproductive Health Committee
The Reproductive Health Committee will serve to review evidence-based practices, educate IAFP members on reproductive health topics, and advocate for reproductive health access in Idaho. The committee is currently involved in:
- Supporting access to the full range of reproductive health services.
- Advocating for enhanced access to contraceptives for Idahoans to prevent unplanned pregnancies.
- Requesting increased efforts to provide sex education by the state of Idaho.
- Developing and distributing educational resources for our members and their patients experiencing unplanned pregnancies.
There has been a recent potential change to EMTALA Guidance in Idaho as a result of the Supreme Court of the United States taking up this lawsuit on
January 5, 2024.
