We’re so excited to announce that we’ve been recognized as a Healthy People 2030 Champion.
Launched by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) in 1979, the Healthy People initiative sets objectives to improve health and well-being nationwide. Healthy People 2030 is the fifth iteration of this initiative, which sets 10-year national objectives.
As a Healthy People 2030 Champion, we are committed to working towards the Healthy People 2030 vision of a society in which all people can achieve their full potential for health and well-being. Alongside other Healthy People 2030 Champions, we are committed to working towards the following overarching goals:
- Attain healthy, thriving lives and well-being free of preventable disease, disability, injury and premature death;
- Eliminate health disparities, achieve health equity, and attain health literacy to improve the health and well-being of all;
- Create social, physical, and economic environments that promote attaining the full potential for health and well-being of all;
- Promote healthy development, healthy behaviors, and well-being across all life stages; and
- Engage leadership, key constituents, and the public across multiple sectors to take action and design policies that improve the health and well-being of all.
Our work focuses on Healthy People 2030 objectives under: Family Planning, Health Care Access & Quality, Health Communication, Sexually Transmitted Infections, and Social & Community Context.
Annually, we provide more than 7,000 individuals access to affordable, compassionate gynecological reproductive medical care and nearly 5,000 youth access to comprehensive sexual health education. Our medical services include the full range of FDA-approved contraceptive methods; pregnancy testing and options counseling; sexually transmitted infection (STI) prevention education, screening and treatment services; rapid HIV testing, counseling and connection to treatment; Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and Post exposure prophylaxis (PEP) for HIV; vaccinations against HPV; as well as clinical breast exams and cervical cancer screening, including appropriate referrals for follow-up care.
We prioritize underserved populations and work to reduce social determinants of health barriers as we serve a majority rural, low-income population that often has difficulty navigating traditional health care settings. We serve all individuals, regardless of income, insurance, or immigration status, and do not turn anyone away if they are unable to afford care.
