The reproductive health landscape in New Jersey is a mixed one.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has brought great advances in health insurance coverage to people throughout New Jersey, including coverage for preventive reproductive health services such as birth control, cancer screenings, and annual well-woman exams.
At the same time, funding for family planning services has been eliminated from the state budget for six years in a row. Rates of sexually transmitted infections are rising, and health disparities facing communities of color continue to be a major problem. There continues to be an unmet demand for basic, preventive health care in the state.
