Planned Parenthood Los Angeles (PPLA) provides reproductive health care and education programs to nearly 130,000 women, men, and teens annually.  It is expanding clinical services on high school campuses to reach underserved teens who experience the greatest barriers to health care. A grant from the W. M. Keck Foundation will support the delivery of affordable reproductive and sexual health care in newly established Wellness Centers at five high-need high schools in Los Angeles that lack on-campus health care.  PPLA’s clinical care is just one element of an expansion in wrap-around services promoting sexual health, social/emotional well-being, and health affirming actions for students that will be offered at 50 high-need schools in LA County through a unique partnership between PPLA and the Los Angeles County Departments of Public Health and Mental Health.  This comprehensive project will address inequities in rates of sexually transmitted infections, teen pregnancies, substance use disorders, and mental health issues in order to significantly improve teen health outcomes in Los Angeles County.
