Birth control services including implants and IUDs, oral contraceptive pills, the ring, condoms, three-month injections, Long-Acting Reversible Contraceptives, and emergency contraception.

They provide counseling for pregnancy and pre-conceptual health and also screening for STD, HIV, cervical dan breast cancer. Treatment and testing for HIV are also offered.

The department is proud to introduce these patient-centered services that will give them tools and resources towards well-planned personal health goals. These services are available in the local community and are available in all 18 health districts located in 159 counties in Georgia.

There are flexible appointment options for those who cannot make it on schedule. They believe everyone should have access to family planning, so in addition to the flexible time, they also offer low-cost high-quality services.
