In 1968, the organization now known as Essential Access Health was founded to coordinate and expand the delivery of family planning services in Los Angeles County. The organization was grounded in the belief that the ability to plan our families and futures and make informed choices about our sexual and reproductive health are essential for individual and community healthy, equity, and economic security. Today, our work and mission touch the lives of millions of women, men and teens throughout the state of California and across the country.
the time is now
Our 50th anniversary comes at a critical time. Reproductive health and rights are once again at risk. Threats to reversing course and turning back the clocks on the progress we’ve made are real and imminent.
To celebrate the impact we have made over the past fifty years and enhance our ability to address the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead, we are pleased to launch the 50th Anniversary Access Fund.
The Access Fund will sustain and advance our work in three key areas:
- Rapid Response – we have to be ready to respond quickly to emerging threats
- Impact + Innovation – we will expand our impact by investing in new initiatives and opportunities
- Core Capacity – we must be able to maintain the infrastructure needed to keep moving forward
With your support we will continue to expand access, promote quality, train the health care workforce, and advance clinical research.
