REDUCING 

UNINTENDED

 

PREGNANCY

PPNNE programs and services have played a 

significant role in bringing teen pregnancy rates 

in our region to among the lowest in the nation. 

Yet even with this progress, overall unintended 

pregnancy remains a major public health issue 

and a driver of inequality. Women’s ability to 

control their reproductive lives is at the heart of 

many issues — from poverty to educational and 

career attainment.

And so, despite unprecedented attacks, we 

continue to advance proactive work and an 

ambitious long–term vision for lowering 

unintended pregnancy rates, creating 

pathways to opportunity through our Equity 

in Pregnancy Intention Campaign (EPIC). 

This multifaceted program brings together 

organization investments in education, outreach, 

partnerships and collaborations, training, and 

enhanced and integrated health care, making 

the most effective birth control methods easily 

accessible, and creating lasting cultural change 

around abortion.

As the leading reproductive health care 

provider in this region, PPNNE is positioned to 

drive innovation and collaboration to achieve 

a real impact on unintended pregnancy rates 

— empowering women, men, and teens to 

achieve their reproductive life plans, making 

it easier to finish school, pursue career 

aspirations, and break the cycle of poverty.
