Grants to this Grantee
for the New Generation Health Center  
This grant to the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), would provide continuing support for the New Generation Health Center (NGHC), a community-based program located in an economically distressed area of San Francisco on the eastern side of the Mission District with high rates of teen pregnancies. Fifty percent of the patients served by the NGHC are Latino, and twenty-five percent are African American. A primary goal of the NGHC is to increase access to reproductive health services in this community in order to decrease health disparities in terms of teen pregnancy and STI rates. NGHC also serves as a research and training site for UCSF clinicians working to improve delivery of reproductive health services.
for increasing access to the copper IUD as emergency contraception at community health centers  
Community health centers serve large numbers of low-income women but traditionally have not focused on contraceptive services. This grant would support a research project aimed at developing and implementing a curriculum to train community health center providers on the latest contraceptives standards, with a emphasis on the most effective reversible contraceptive methods—intrauterine devices (IUDs) and implants—as well as the use of copper IUDs as emergency contraception. The project would be implemented at five or more sites within Alameda County’s Community Health Center network with a similar number of control sites to assess the results of the training.
for support of the Center for Reproductive Health Research and Policy  
This grant would provide unrestricted support for the Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health at the University of California at San Francisco, which promotes reproductive health, family planning, and the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases through research, evaluation, training, and policy analysis in the United States and globally. The Bixby Center also disseminates information from its clinical trials and other research in forms that reach both professional, policy, and lay audiences. Most of the Bixby Center’s work focuses on topics key to the Foundation’s strategy including increasing the use of intrauterine devices and implants and expanding access to abortion.
