“In my journey as a physician and advocate,

Physicians for Reproductive Health has been a steadfast guide, benefactor, and friend, enabling me to be the best reproductive rights advocate that I can be.”

While 2014 draws to a close, we’re gearing up for 2015. As doctors, we believe that personal decisions about health care should be medical — not political. We’re fighting back, and how we do this is what makes us unique: We bring the physician’s distinctive voice to debates over reproductive health care by training physician-advocates to speak out in Washington, in state legislatures, in the media, and in hospitals and medical schools.

We could not have come this far without your support. Please consider making a year-end donation or becoming a member before 2015. Every tax-deductible dollar you contribute will increase our ability to bring together the medical community and concerned supporters on behalf of reproductive health policies that meet everyone’s needs.

Thank you, and best wishes for 2015. 

Universal Health Coverage DayPhysicians for Reproductive Health has joined over 350 organizations around the world to launch the first-ever Universal Health Coverage Day on December 12, 2014. This historic coalition marks the anniversary of a landmark United Nations resolution urging all countries to provide universal access to health care without financial hardship.

No one should fall into poverty because they get sick and need health care. Universal health coverage is an essential component for making comprehensive reproductive health care access a reality for all.

Our doctors have seen the difference that insurance coverage for basic reproductive health care, like contraception, can make in women’s lives. Read their stories here.
