One Key Question Initiative (OKQ)

The One Key Question Initiative encourages all primary care providers to ask women the question “Would you like to become pregnant in the next year?” as a routine part of primary care. Asking this simple question ensures that more pregnancies are wanted, planned, and healthy. OKQ has been endorsed by American Public Health Association, American Academy of Family Physicians, and National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women’s Health.
