The Fund for Public Health in New York City (FPHNYC) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to the advancement of the health and well-being of all New Yorkers.  To this end, in partnership with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), FPHNYC incubates innovative public health initiatives implemented by DOHMH to advance community health throughout the city. It facilitates partnerships, often new and unconventional, between the government and the private sector to develop, test, and launch new initiatives. These collaborations speed the execution of demonstration projects, effect expansion of successful pilot programs, and support rapid implementation to meet the public health needs of individuals, families, and communities across New York City. 


PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The NYC Department of Health & Mental Hygiene is committed to helping create a world where all New Yorkers can safely express their sexuality and gender identity with dignity, possessing the knowledge, skills, and resources to support healthy and fulfilling lives. The Bureau of Maternal, Infant and Reproductive Health (BMIRH) is dedicated to eliminating inequities in maternal, infant, and reproductive health outcomes. This mission is achieved through programs, policy advocacy, and research initiatives. BMIRH strives to apply a sexual and reproductive justice and racial justice framework to our work and to fully engage community partners to move this work forward. One component of this work is to ensure that all New Yorkers of reproductive age, particularly young people, have the necessary information and resources to make informed decisions around sexual and reproductive health and to act on those decisions. 


To further this goal, BMIRH's Sexual and Reproductive Health Unit (SRH Unit) uses the sexual and reproductive justice framework that prioritizes access to services and education, as well as bodily autonomy, within the context of historical events, lived experiences, sexualities, and social conditions. The SRH unit uses a multi-faceted approach to sexual and reproductive health and justice, which includes community engagement, public awareness, development and dissemination of best clinical practices, data collection on health indicators, and quality improvement learning collaboratives.
