At Planned Parenthood our mission is to ensure all people have access to the care and resources they need to make informed decisions about their bodies, their lives, and their futures. Founded in 1916, Planned Parenthood is a trusted health care provider, educator, and passionate advocate here in the U.S. as well as a strong partner to health and rights organizations around the world. Each year, Planned Parenthood delivers vital sexual and reproductive health care, sex education, and information to millions of people.
Community is the heart of Planned Parenthood and we strive to be good neighbors in partnership with on-the-ground health and rights organizations. Our expert health care professionals are dedicated to providing high-quality, compassionate, and affordable care. No matter what. As a leader in sexual and reproductive services, Planned Parenthood is proud to serve the diverse needs of local communities through a national network of more than 600 health centers operated by our affiliates.
Planned Parenthood health centers provide a wide range of services — namely preventive care, including birth control, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections, and screenings for cervical and other cancers. Our dedicated doctors, nurses, and support staff take time to not only talk with patients, but to see them for who they are as individuals and support the life they envision for themselves.
