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. ​
