Essential Access Health strengthens the delivery of in-person and remote sexual + reproductive health care to ensure there is no “wrong door” for accessing equitable, inclusive, client-centered and high quality sexual and reproductive health services – including birth control, STI prevention and treatment, and medication abortion. We support and enhance integrated models of care to reduce barriers and help meet the individual needs of patients – with dignity and respect.

Through our TeenSource+ initiative, Essential Access empowers, engages, and collaborates with young people to educate their peers about their sexual and reproductive health, direct services available, and their right to access comprehensive, medically-accurate and confidential care. We also develop culturally-responsive programming and public awareness campaigns that connect youth to sexual and reproductive health care and information.

As the administrator of California’s Title X federal family planning program, Essential Access leads the largest and most diverse Title X system in the country. Essential Access has served as the lead Title X grantee in the state of California since the program was established over 50 years ago with bi-partisan support.

Essential Access Health’s STI Prevention Center partners closely with the California STD Control Branch, county health departments and providers across the state to implement best practices in STI screening, treatment and prevention.
