Patient Services

UHPP operates three health centers in Albany, Hudson and Troy. In an average year, over 9,300 patients make over 15,000 visits to these centers combined. Each center offers a wide range of reproductive health services including GYN exams, pap smears and breast cancer screenings, birth control information and supplies, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections, Emergency Contraception, pregnancy options counseling, abortion services and more. Both the Albany and Troy health centers offer special teen drop-in clinics when teen patients and their friends can hang out in a specially designed teen waiting room, staffed by our education staff and high school peer educators, while they wait for appointments. These teen clinics are extremely popular and enable us to provide both health services and education to a greater number of local youth. Our staff also offers special assistance to those patients who qualify and wish to enroll in one of several state funded programs offering expanded coverage under Medicaid for family planning services.

Community Education

Our UHPP Youth Health Promoters (YHP) high school peer education programs are funded by the New York State Health Department's Comprehensive Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention initiative. Under this award-winning program, high school students in Albany, Columbia and Rensselaer Counties are recruited and trained to provide factual information in and out of the classroom on sexual health and responsibility. We also provide after-school programming for high school aged students and professional resources and training for youth-serving professionals. Our education department also has an exceptional partnership with Albany Medical College providing classroom and on-site instruction for medical students on the provision of family planning services and abortion.

Public Affairs

Our Public Affairs department works with advocates and volunteers to build awareness of our mission and of legislation or policy that will impact access to reproductive health services and reproductive choice. Public Affairs staff organize and engage volunteers and interns and support pro-choice student groups at many local college campuses. The staff also collaborates with other advocacy and human services organizations such as the Pride Center of the Capital Region, Planned Parenthood Empire State Acts, the New York State Coalition Against Sexual Assault and the New York Civil Liberties Union for the improved health and welfare of all residents of the Capital Region. The department keeps supporters up to date through the Choice Remarks newsletter, emails and this web site (www.uhpp.org). And on social media site: FacebookTumblrTwitter, Instagram and YouTube. Follow us today!


The UHPP Development Department works in collaboration with our Board of Directors and dozens of volunteers to maintain and build support for the agency through individual, corporate and foundation support. More than 1,200 donors contribute each year to the UHPP Annual Fund.  Those interested in the long term future of UHPP in the Capital Region are encouraged to consider a planned gift, donation of securities or to include UHPP in your will.
