It's time for free prescription contraception in BC!
We believe prescription contraception is a right, not a luxury. Helping people exercise their sexual and reproductive rights makes British Columbia a better province for individuals and for communities.

Prescription contraception in British Columbia is expensive - an intrauterine device (IUD) can cost between $75 and $380, oral contraceptive pills can cost $20 per month, and hormone injections can cost as much as $180 per year. These costs make prescription contraception difficult or even impossible to access for the people who need it most.
AccessBC's campaign is based on the idea that universal coverage for prescription contraception is good policy - it helps the most vulnerable people in our communities, it reduces gender inequality, it improves health outcomes for parents and children, and it makes good fiscal sense.
