Since our inception of the program in 2015, the research department at Planned Parenthood North Central States has made important contributions to the science related to:

  • Testing a new rapid identification test for herpes simplex viruses.
  • Assessing the efficacy of a new oral contraceptive pill.
  • Improving post-abortion contraception delivery.
  • Assessing patient experiences with emergency contraception.
  • Simplifying patient requirements for medication abortion.
  • Evaluating patient support volunteer and abortion doula programs.


The mission of the PPNCS Research Division is to engage in innovative and collaborative research to improve access to equitable and quality sexual and reproductive health. We are committed to the production of knowledgeable and best-practices informed by justice and compassion that affirm the human right to reproductive autonomy.


Our vision is continued leadership and influence to create radical change in sexual and reproductive health. We aspire to provide expertise in ongoing and emerging issues in the field.
