For 85 years, Planned Parenthood MN, ND, SD has been the leading provider and protector of reproductive health in our region.
Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota (PPMNS) is the leading provider and champion of women’s health care across Minnesota. 1 in 5 women in our region has turned to us at some point in her life for professional, nonjudgmental, confidential care.
In 2012 alone, we served nearly 70,000 women, men, and teens with compassionate, expert care.
More than 95 percent of what we provide is preventive health services, including lifesaving cancer screenings, birth control, prevention, testing and treatment of STDs, breast health services, sexual health education, information and accurate, nonjudgmental health counseling.
Along with working to keep our community healthy, we provide comprehensive, evidence-based education to more than 32,000 people each year. Through peer education and lay health advisor programs, parent-child programming and community outreach events, we encourage communication between teens and their parents and offer participants the tools to educate and empower their own communities. We also advocate for public health policies that protect and promote women’s access to health care in Minnesota.
Your support is vital to ensure we can continue to provide excellent reproductive health care and replace fear with facts through our education programs. Your donation goes directly towards our work caring for patients and educating the public, and makes sure that PPMNS will be here for our community– no matter what.
