To reduce unintended pregnancy, improve preconception health and improve maternal and child health outcomes, providers should screen women for their pregnancy intentions on a proactive, routine basis. In order to identify preventive reproductive health care needs of women, One Key Question® involves asking "Would you like to become pregnant in the next year?" and providing follow-up care based on her response. It has the potential to increase women’s access to comprehensive contraception and preconception care with a patient-centric screening.
