Washington State Sexual and Reproductive Health Data

The Washington State Sexual and Reproductive Health Network provides services, supplies, and information to help individuals of all genders achieve optimal sexual and reproductive health, improve the rate of intentional pregnancies, avoid unintended pregnancies, and understand their pregnancy/parenting intentions. We help individuals achieve their desired number of children, including no children, and determine the timing and spacing of pregnancies.

The Network serves all who want and need sexual and reproductive health services.

There are currently 16 organizations in Washington's Sexual and Reproductive Health Network. These organizations operate 87 clinics that provide sexual and reproductive health services at a sliding fee. Washington State provides funding to make sure people with low-incomes and people who are uninsured or underinsured can access these services.

We collect and analyze data to improve Network performance. Below are profiles for each Network partner detailing client demographics, contraceptive methods used, unwanted outcomes averted, and costs saved.

The Need for Publicly Funded Sexual and Reproductive Health Services

Most people in Washington State have health coverage (insurance). Washington State requires individual health benefit plans to cover maternity services and state-regulated plans to:

  • Cover all FDA-approved contraceptive methods with no cost-sharing requirements
  • Cover over-the-counter contraceptives without requiring a prescription
  • Cover abortion services to the same extent that they cover maternity services

There is still a need for publicly funded family planning services. Some people:

  • Have health coverage through a plan that is not regulated by the state
  • Do not have health coverage of any kind
  • Cannot use their health coverage for sexual and reproductive health services due to confidentiality concerns. (This often includes young people and people living with intimate partner violence or domestic violence.)
