Summary of "Changes in the Clinical Capacity of Local Health Departments and Continuity of Reproductive Health Services."

The role of local health departments (LHDs) as a clinical service provider remains a salient topic of discussion. As local and state health departments continue to migrate away from clinical services, there is need to understand the impact on these transitions on access to care in a given community. The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of clinical capacity reductions in LHDs on receipt of annual family planning visits among South Carolina women.
