We take a multifaceted approach to support New Yorkers in leading healthy reproductive and sexual lives.
Since 2010, the overall number of women who have gained access to publicly funded contraceptive services has more than doubled. In addition, there have been steep declines in unplanned births and unintended pregnancies in New York.
Public Health Solutions has contributed to these trends, providing patients and public health practitioners with tools and services to ensure the best possible care.
Reproductive Health Centers provide affordable healthcare services including free, walk-in pregnancy testing, gynecological exams, prenatal care, contraception, STI testing and treatment and HIV testing and counseling to over 4,000 women, men and adolescents each year.
Title X Family Planning is the only federal funding source dedicated solely to family planning. We administer federal Title X funding to health centers to support them in providing high-quality and comprehensive family planning and preventive health services for low-income or uninsured community members. PHS ensures that funds support a network of 13 service sites that serve 30,000 New Yorkers each year.
Family Planning Capacity Building Program offers specialized training and technical assistance to increase contraceptive care in a primary care setting.
WhichMethod.org is a bilingual (English and Spanish) online toool to help teens and young women engage in the birth control decision-making process. This digital decision-making tool helps young women choose a contraceptive method that is effective, medically appropriate, and best fits their lifestyle and goals.
