As the most trusted provider of reproductive health care, we promote the ability of all individuals to lead fulfilled lives, build healthy families, and make informed decisions through high-quality health services, education, and advocacy.
As part of our commitment to providing high-quality sexual and reproductive health care, we launched Gender Affirming Care in June 2019. From responses to our LGBTQ+ Community Needs and Assets Assessment, conducted in partnership with Fielding Graduate University, we understand the impact of gender-affirming care on those who seek access to safe, inclusive, trusted health services. Gender Affirming Care includes collaborating with community partners, extensive training for staff, hiring a gender-affirming care navigator, expanding options on all patient and registration intake forms, and identifying referral options. Planned Parenthood is proud to advance gender-affirming care throughout our affiliate service area so that every patient will feel seen, heard, respected, and cared for with dignity and professionalism.
