For World Contraception Day 2019 Nurx has partnered with Power to Decide to provide 1000 women in need with free birth control for one year. We’re also donating $10,000 to BC Benefits, the contraceptive access fund run by Bedsider, the Power to Decide educational website. Nurx is committed to reaching women whose health needs are not met by the traditional healthcare system, and driving awareness of the barriers too many women face to access birth control and other essential care. Already a BC Benefits patient? Get started here.
