Advocacy + Awareness
Essential Access Health advocates on the local, state and federal levels to protect and expand access to quality sexual and reproductive health care for all. Essential Access Health also works to ensure that the promise of health care reform is fully realized for low-income Californians. For the two to four million California residents expected to remain uninsured by 2019, we are committed to maintaining the federal Title X (ten) family planning program and California’s public family planning program Family PACT.
Because sexual and reproductive health are essential components of a healthy society, Essential Access Health disseminates medically-accurate culturally and linguistically appropriate sexual and reproductive health information to allow patients to make informed decisions and stay safe and healthy. Essential Access Health also works to link Californians to affordable and responsive health care and coverage options at health centers statewide.
