“We aim to empower individuals to determine their own sexual health and reproductive futures”
Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic (PPHP) provides reproductive and sexual health care at 10 health centers in Suffolk, Westchester, and Rockland counties, New York. We help people get the services and information they need to prevent unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases while staying healthy.
For 83 years, we have provided exceptional health services, accurate information and education, and fearless advocacy for reproductive rights and justice.
In 2015, services were provided to more than 34,000 patients in more than 59,000 visits. Our education and training programs reached 30,000 people and our Call Center answered 153,000 calls.
Trusted health care provider
PPHP’s ten health centers offer nonjudgmental, professional treatment, confidentiality, and affordable quality care. Health centers offer services such as lifesaving cancer screenings; birth control; prevention, testing, and treatment for sexually transmitted infections; breast health services; Pap tests; information, and health counseling.
Our education and training department offers programs providing accurate, unbiased information about human sexuality. We conduct programs for high schools, colleges, residential facilities, civic associations, and parents, as well as trainings for professionals and child care providers.
PPHP keeps up on issues related to family planning, sexuality education, and reproductive health and sends legislative updates and alerts. Our political and advocacy arm, the PPHP Action Fund, works to encourage the passage of pro-women’s health legislation, as well as public policies that promote reproductive health and rights – such as adequate funding for family planning services, access to safe and affordable abortion, and the promotion of medically-accurate, age-appropriate sex education for our youth.
