Impact

VLPP has made remarkable strides towards serving more of Richmond's low-income women in planning their families and maintaining their health. We provide low-cost reproductive health care, research-based sexuality education for the Greater Richmond and Greater Hampton Roads Metro regions. Our health care services for low to moderate income women and men include annual gynecological exams, PAP smears, STI testing and treatment, breast exams, follow-up testing for cervical cancer prevention, abortion services, and comprehensive primary care services.

VLPP entered into a management contract with Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Virginia in May of 2014. On January 1, 2015, VLPP and PPSEV merged, and are now joined as the Virginia League for Planned Parenthood. Our service area now encompasses the Greater Richmond and Greater Hampton Roads regions. 
 
Our most notable accomplishments include: 
 
In 2015, our health centers in Richmond, Virginia Beach, and Hampton saw over 27,000 patient visits.
  • We have seen 1,180 patients for annual exams this year. VLPP intends to provide 1,200 annual gynecological well-woman exams, including PAP smears, breast exams, and symptomatic STI testing as recommended, in the upcoming fiscal year. 
  • We have seen 111 patients for follow-up care after an abnormal Pap this year. VLPP plans to provide at least 175 women with follow-up care for abnormal Pap smears in the upcoming fiscal year.
  • Our primary care services have been fully integrated. All patients are screened for hypertension and diabetes, for example. We have seen 128 patients for hypertension management to date. VLPP plans to treat and manage at least 125 patients with hypertension in the upcoming fiscal year.
Needs
Over the next year, our greatest challenges will be:
  1. Implementing a full electronic medical records system in our Hampton Roads health centers;
  2. Building our sustainable education fund, so that the youth of Virginia will have a resource that they can count on to provide accurate sexuality education;
  3. Continuing to serve our growing patient population throughout our service area.
Background

The Virginia League for Planned Parenthood (VLPP) has been providing reproductive health care services for over sixty-five years. 

On January 1, 2015, VLPP and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Virginia (PPSEV) merged and now operate as the Virginia League for Planned Parenthood. PPSEV served the Hampton Roads area, with affiliates in Virginia Beach and Hampton, since its founding in 1965. Our service area now includes 50 cities and counties in the Greater Richmond and Greater Hampton Roads Metropolitan areas.

VLPP provides a full range of low-cost reproductive health care services including annual exams, breast exams, diagnosis and treatment of pre-cancerous cervical conditions, sexually transmitted infection screenings and treatment, comprehensive primary care services, and abortion services.  In 2005, we began a collaboration with Children’s Home Society so that we could offer adoption services on-site.
 
VLPP also provides research-based sexuality education programs throughout the Metro Richmond and Greater Hampton Roads areas. These programs provide young people with the information they need to make healthy life decisions.
 
VLPP is the only local provider of low-cost follow-up procedures for women who experience an abnormal Pap test result.
