Abstract

Although nearly 1000 school-based health centers (SBHCs) operate in the United States, little is known about SBHCs' sexual and reproductive health services. This study investigated reproductive and sexual health services delivery in SBHCs, specifically the types of services available in SBHCs. A 16-page, self-administered questionnaire asked center staff to identify the reproductive health services provided on site as well as which services were restricted and by whom. The results suggest that whereas most SBHCs provided at least one reproductive health service, most centers were restricted from providing contraceptive services, usually by school district policy.
