Section of Family Planning - University of Chicago

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: January 17, 2012, 9:32 PM

Description

The Section of Family Planning and Contraceptive Research at the University of Chicago is grounded in the belief that every woman has a right to plan if, when and how to have a family regardless of race/ethnicity, socio-economic status or citizenship. We believe the future of reproductive health can only be secured through:

Education – To guarantee health care professionals will have the competencies necessary to provide comprehensive reproductive health services. Research – To augment current knowledge in the field in a manner that is inclusive of women and girls from all cultures and economic backgrounds. Policy – To ensure women and girls continue to have access to a wide range of reproductive health care services through social policies that maintain a women's bodily integrity.

These tenets are embodied through the Section's contraception research program, fellowship in family planning and contraception, reproductive health policy program and our Reproductive Health Clinic. Within these components we focus on:

• Disseminating innovative, original research that highlights the family planning needs of men and women with a particular focus on the role of culture in contraceptive use and compliance; • Working to place issues of health disparities in family planning onto the national research and policy agenda; • Securing the visibility of potential threats to and advancements of reproductive health issues in our political system; • Producing highly skilled clinician-researchers who are committed to advancing family planning knowledge through evidence-based medicine; • Ensuring comprehensive training in contraception and abortion for residents through the Reproductive Health Clinic; and • Providing accessible services to minority, low-income and medically complicated women
