About Physicians for Reproductive Health:

Physicians for Reproductive Health (Physicians) unites the medical community and concerned supporters. Together, we work to improve access to comprehensive reproductive health care, including contraception and abortion to meet the health care needs of all people.

  • We bring the physician’s distinctive voice to debates over reproductive health care.
  • We provide leadership and tools so that physicians can speak up and take action.
  • We use scientific expertise and our doctors’ real-life experiences to influence legislation, medical practice, and public opinion.
  • We advocate for reproductive health as a core part of all medical curricula.

Within our own organization, across all program areas, we commit to engaging in continual professional and organizational development toward the sustainability and longevity of Reproductive Justice (RJ) work as we partner with and amplify the work of leading Reproductive Justice organizations.

The current context will require that Physicians remains steadfast in confronting attacks on access to reproductive health care and related progressive issues, yet nimble and creative in responding to those assaults. The unstable political environment will also require that we revisit the Strategic Plan periodically to determine if it needs adjustment to address emerging challenges and to take advantage of new opportunities to ensure access to reproductive health care for all.
