Featured Organization: Reproductive Health Technologies Project (RHTP)

The Reproductive Health Technologies Project (RHTP) is a DC-based nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the ability of every woman to achieve full reproductive freedom by having access to the safest, most effective, appropriate and acceptable technologies for ensuring her own health and controlling her fertility. Founded in 1988, RHTP helps to ensure that new reproductive technologies related to contraception, abortion, STDs, and fertility are developed safely, and that women are well-informed about their options. RHTP’s work intersects public health education, advocacy, and policy development surrounding new and current reproductive health technologies by building consensus with experts across various industries and developing strategies on cutting edge issues.
