Impact

 The Virginia League for Planned Parenthood provides affordable, high-quality reproductive and primary health care, research-based sexuality education programs, and conducts community education about reproductive rights issues for the Greater Richmond and Greater Hampton Roads Metro regions. VLPP operates three health centers in Richmond, Virginia Beach, and Hampton. Our health care services for low to moderate income patients include annual gynecological exams, Pap smears, STI testing and treatment, breast exams, diagnosis and treatment of precancerous cervical conditions, abortion services, transgender health services, and comprehensive primary care services.

 
Our health centers in Richmond, Virginia Beach, and Hampton saw over 18,000 patients in 2016.

This year, VLPP has: 
  • seen over 1,300 patients for annual preventative visits, including annual gynecological exams, Pap smears, breast exams, and symptomatic STI testing as recommended;
  • provided 213 patients with follow-up care after an abnormal Pap smear;
  • fully integrated our primary care services;
  • begun offering transgender health services. VLPP serves transgender people and people at various places on the spectrum of gender identity and expression, and we are committed to improving the way transgender people receive health care in our region. We have updated our services to ensure that all of our services are trans-inclusive, and we now offer hormone treatment.
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.
