New research from TxPEP entitled "Barriers to Offering Vasectomy at Publicly Funded Family Planning Organizations in Texas," recently published in the American Journal of Men's Health, provides insight into why vasectomy is not more widely available at family planning clinics in Texas.

“We found that the majority of barriers to the availability of vasectomy as a contraceptive method are associated with funding, training, and community education,” said TxPEP co-investigator Kari White, the lead author on the study. “A multi-level approach that simultaneously addresses these factors could allow publicly funded family planning organizations to offer comprehensive contraceptive services that include vasectomy.”
