Women have a right to high-quality reproductive care and should be able to make their own health decisions.
Choices about birth control and reproductive health are often driven by the health care system rather than the patient. Millions of women lack access to a reproductive health provider, while economic, social, and political factors affect the quality of care some receive. And many providers don’t offer all birth control options, leading to inequitable treatment.
We are working to promote equity, autonomy, and justice in the reproductive health care system by expanding access to contraception, closing gaps in reproductive health care coverage, and informing women about their contraception options. We aim to learn more about the issues that affect women who have been disenfranchised by the health care system. And our grants include technical assistance to state governments, funding for programs that provide same-day access to birth control, and research about how to improve access.
