UC San Francisco

For The New Generation Health Center

Overview
The New Generation Health Center of the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) provides teen-friendly reproductive health care for young people in southeastern San Francisco neighborhoods with high rates of teen pregnancy. Fifty percent of the patients are Latino; twenty-five percent are African American. A primary goal of the clinic is to increase access to reproductive health services in these communities in order to decrease health disparities in terms of unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted infection rates. The Center’s association with the UCSF Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences enables the clinic to draw upon the talent and resources of UCSF’s experts in reproductive health and provides a research site for various academic studies examining reproductive behavior. During the prior grant period, the health center significantly increased both the number of clients it serves each month as well as the percentage of those clients who choose highly effective birth control methods such as IUDs.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of the 2014 Global Conference on Social Franchising for Health  
The Global Health Group at the University of California at San Francisco conducts research on the provision of health services around the world, with a particular focus on the extent and quality of health services provided by the private sector. This grant to the Global Health Group would support the 2nd conference on best practices for social franchising in health in October 2014 in the Philippines. Health social franchise programs use a commercial franchise model to improve access to and the quality of public health services in privately-run, and increasingly government, health clinics – many of which specialize in reproductive health. This conference in the Philippines will target 170 implementers, donors, policy-makers, and academics and feature successful practices in health financing, performance measurement, use of technology and ways to strengthen links to the public health system.
for a study on contraception in community colleges in Texas and California  
This grant will support a research project that is assessing an intervention to improve access to contraceptive services for young women attending community college in Texas. The project will explore how access to contraceptive services and prevention of unintended pregnancy can improve young women’s confidence in achieving their educational and career aspirations and support them to complete their degree on time and successfully enter the paid labor force.
