The National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association is the umbrella organization for the network of "safety net" family planning providers in the United States. These providers serve people who have nowhere else to go and who often need free or subsidized health care. The organization works to provide a public policy voice and technical assistance to its members, and use litigation, analysis, education, and communications to promote policies that expand access to family planning services for the poorest throughout the United States.
