This Clearinghouse Connector contains a selection of up-to-date freely available resources on long acting reversible contraceptives (LARC). These are methods of contraception that require administration less than once per month, and can be removed or 'reversed', and should not affect long-term fertility.
Your generous contribution will help drive social change, address women's health needs and promote gender equality to achieve better outcomes for all Victorian women. No contribution is too small in helping us achieve our vision of women living well - healthy, empowered and equal.

We pay our respects to them, their cultures and their Elders past, present and emerging.
We recognise that sovereignty was never ceded and that we are beneficiaries of stolen land and dispossession, which began over 200 years ago and continues today.
