Clinical Research



The mission of PPAZ's Clinical Research Department is to conduct innovative and collaborative research designed to expand access to equitable, evidence-based sexual and reproductive health. We are informed by the principles of anti-racism, justice, and compassion, which guide us to affirm the human right to reproductive autonomy.


Our vision is to be industry leaders creating radical progress in the field of sexual and reproductive health for all persons.

Why is Research Important?

Research is one of the four pillars of Planned Parenthood’s mission. Research supports the pillars of care, education, and advocacy. Research helps us find the best ways of providing care and education and how to be the best advocates we can be by better understanding the needs of our patients and the types of interventions that work for them. ​
