Provide is a nonprofit organization founded in 1992. We work in partnership with health and social service providers to reduce barriers to care at the intersection of abortion and other stigmatized healthcare by providing training and support, centering marginalized communities where there is demand and decreased access. We envision an equitable sexual and reproductive health system that cares for the whole person with dignity and respect.
We see potential for any individual who cares for people to play a role in ensuring accessible abortion care. By addressing abortion within the context of the full range of people’s needs and our broader values, we help partners make a significant contribution to people’s health and autonomy. Engaging healthcare and social service providers and empowering them with information and skills about abortion is a critical opportunity to improve coordination of care for people seeking abortion.
We have over 30 years of experience working within healthcare and social service systems to support professionals. Our depth of knowledge around introducing difficult topics in the workplace helps us equip workers with the tools and resources needed to offer referrals for unintended pregnancy in their settings. After 10 years of training more than 11,000 providers from over half of the states in the US on stigma-free counseling and referrals for unintended pregnancy and abortion care, we’re bringing our effective best-practices and resources to professionals and organizations nationwide with our FREE virtual trainings.
