Peer-to-peer ec distribution

On some campuses, students face extra barriers to accessing EC. These can include institutions that are: 

  • Religiously-affiliated or generally more conservative, with little or no contraceptive access on campus
  • Unable or unwilling to provide EC through student health services
  • Rural or geographically isolated from community sources of EC, such as pharmacies or clinics

Student activists on campuses such as Georgetown University, Hampton University, and Tulane University have developed peer-to-peer EC distribution programs so that they can provide EC directly to fellow students in a discreet and confidential way. These programs generally offer EC at no cost, low cost, or for a voluntary donation. 


If you think this model might be a good fit for your campus, here are some ways to get involved: 

  • Join our #EC4EC discussion group! Our group includes student activists and leaders from different types of campuses all over the country who share an interest in improving access to EC on campus. Click here to get involved!
  • Share our donation page with your networks to spread the word and help build resources for campus groups!
