The Oregon Reproductive Health Program works with clinics across the state to offer free or low-cost reproductive health services and birth control. As part of the Adolescent, Genetics and Reproductive Health (AGRH) Section, the Reproductive Health Program commits to working towards racial equity by addressing racism, acknowledging implicit bias, and shifting how we do what we do. We accept that our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) means a commitment to constant learning – we will make mistakes, but we are determined to learn from them and to improve.

Statement from Oregon Health Authority
August 27, 2019
Yesterday, the Oregon Health Authority faced a deadline imposed by the federal government to withdraw from the Title X family planning program, or face termination for non-compliance. Last week, Oregon informed the United States Department of Health and Human Services that we had suspended the use of the federal funds to avoid imposing the administration’s newly implemented gag rule on Oregon women. The federal government has rejected Oregon’s plan.
The federal deadline leaves Oregon no choice but to relinquish our nearly 50-year participation in Title X. We cannot violate our own state laws that guarantee Oregon women full access to reproductive health services and prohibit any restriction on benefits, services
or information regarding a woman’s right to choose to terminate a pregnancy.
In Oregon, we are fortunate to have funds available to continue offering comprehensive reproductive health care services.
Clients seeking care at the Reproductive Health Program’s network of clinics will continue to receive the same high-quality, client-centered reproductive health services that have always been available.
