A report on Women's Health and Health Care Reform co-authored by immediate past board chair Wendy Chavkin, MD, MPH, is the basis for a Congressional resolution introduced by Sen.

PRCH supports policies that promote reproductive healthcare for all, including increased access to birth control, emergency contraception, and abortion services, as well as comprehensive sex education. PRCH opposes policies that place politics over science at the expense of the reproductive healthcare of women, men, and teens. Read more about PRCH's 2009 Policy Agenda.
