About PRH:

Physicians for Reproductive Health (PRH), a network of doctors across the country, works to improve access to comprehensive reproductive health care. We do this by mobilizing and educating clinicians, speaking with the media, and advocating with our policy makers to achieve a vision of person-centered health care that is safe, supported, and accessible. The current social and political climate requires that PRH remains steadfast in confronting attacks on access to reproductive health care and related progressive issues, yet nimble and creative in responding to those assaults.

  • We bring the physician’s distinctive voice to discussions about and debates over reproductive health care, ensuring that the people we serve are centered and prioritized.
  • We provide leadership and tools so that physicians can speak up and take action to advocate for the communities they care for.
  • We use scientific expertise, medical evidence and lived experience to influence legislation, medical practice, and public opinion.
  • We advocate for comprehensive reproductive health as a core part of all medical curricula.
  • We train doctors to educate their colleagues and other health professionals on best practices in reproductive and sexual health care.
  • We offer the strength of our network to physicians all over the world.
  • We work to ensure that equity and justice is the foundation of our work, including a commitment to racial justice and it is applied to organizational operations, including internal processes and infrastructure.
  • We maintain a workplace culture that attracts, retains, and motivates a diverse staff, deepening and strengthening a culture of inclusion and equity within the team and across the entire organization.
