Plan A clinics bring reproductive and sexual health care to rural communities, free of charge. We recently raised $350,000 to purchase a mobile unit to serve the Mississippi Delta region. Next up: fundraising for care delivery. Your support helps us to bring vital healthcare directly where it's needed. 100% of donations go to support programming - no administrative fees, no overhead, just care.
Your generous donation helps us to purchase medical supplies for the clinic, support the salary of community health workers , program coordinators, and nurse practitioners, run education programs, and keep the clinic on the road. All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
The Mississippi Delta mobile clinic will provide essential services including comprehensive contraception options, STI and HIV testing, PrEP HIV prevention, pap smears, primary care screenings, and more. The full clinic will launch in early 2021, with limited services provided in 2020 - with your support! Help us keep our services free for all people regardless of income, insurance, or location. Women living in rural and non-metropolitan areas are less likely to receive reproductive health services than those in urban communities - essential programs like Plan A can help change that.

Nearly 45% of all pregnancies in the United States are unintended with the highest rates found among rural and low-income women, women aged 18-24, and women of color. Access to reproductive health care and comprehensive sexual health education is increasingly unavailable as a result of restrictive laws and an overall lack of health care resources in these communities. Plan A clinics offer comprehensive reproductive health care, empowering women to make family planning decisions that best serve their needs and to access affordable and effective contraception.
The current fundraiser is to support our first clinic, located in the Mississippi Delta region. Mississippi's health care outcomes consistently rank among the poorest in the nation. Twelve percent of the population is uninsured, ranking #6 in the US. Rates of unintended pregnancies are almost 20% higher in Mississippi than the average rate in the United States and publicly supported family planning centers in Mississippi currently meet only 39% of Mississippi womens' needs for reproductive health services. Less than half of the counties in the state have practicing obstetrician-gynecologists, severely limiting access to comprehensive contraception options. Providers in the state are legally permitted to refuse to provide services related to contraception, yet another barrier to care for women in need of options. The state has one of the highest STI rates in the country and rates of HIV are climbing in certain counties.
