One Key Question® (OKQ), a strategy developed by the Oregon Foundation for Reproductive Health, asks women, “Would you like to become pregnant in the next year?” and provides them appropriate follow-up care and counseling. Spearheaded by the Milwaukee Lifecourse Initiative for Healthy Families (LIHF) Health Care Access Committee, OKQ was piloted in 2016-2017 at four sites in Milwaukee.
- City of Milwaukee Health Department (MHD)Maternal and Child Health Home Visiting Programs
- Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin Northwest Clinic
- Progressive Community Health Centers (PCHC) Women’s Health Department
- Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers (SSCHC)
More than 9,000 women were asked OKQ. Of those women asked, 83% said “no” they are not interested in becoming pregnant in the next year and 13% said “yes.” For more details on the results of asking OKQ in Milwaukee, the full final report is available here.
We will be gathering stakeholders interested in planning for what comes next for One Key Question in Milwaukee. Please contact Allison Amphlett at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you are interested in being a part of this planning.
