Our Sexual and Reproductive Health Centers provide affordable, comprehensive, and confidential reproductive and sexual healthcare to more than 4,000 women, men, and adolescents each year.
We offer a complete range of health services, including free walk-in pregnancy testing, gynecological exams, prenatal care, preconception care, birth control (including IUDs and implants), emergency contraceptives (morning after pill), men’s sexual healthcare, teen’s sexual healthcare, STI testing and treatment, HIV testing and counseling, mental health services, medication abortion, and health education. We are located in Fort Greene and Brownsville, Brooklyn.
PHS’ Sexual and Reproductive Health Capacity Building (SRH-CB) Program supports primary care practices and other health care settings to provide patient-centered contraceptive care and ensure access to high-quality services. PHS provides quality improvement coaching, training and technical assistance on contraceptive care best practices, patient-centered care strategies and the Sexual and Reproductive Justice (SRJ) framework, as well as technical solutions to improve billing and revenue cycle management.
In the summer of 2019, we made the difficult decision to turn away Title X Family Planning funding due to the federal government’s gag rule that would prevent our network from providing comprehensive sexual and reproductive health care services. PHS was a direct grantee of the program, the only federal funding source dedicated solely to family planning, for nearly 40 years. PHS’ Title X program supported a network of 13 service sites that served New Yorkers each year, providing high-quality and comprehensive services for low-income or uninsured community members.
