In May 2008, after a year-long exploration process funded by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, PIWH merged with Pharmacy Access Partnership. Pharmacy Access Partnership is now a center of the Pacific Institute for Women’s Health and leads efforts on reproductive health access in pharmacy settings.

Founded in 1999, as a center of the Public Health Institute by the late Jane Boggess, PhD, Pharmacy Access Partnership is a recognized leader in promoting the role of pharmacists as community health providers, and pharmacies as an additional, convenient and integral point of reproductive healthcare access.

Pharmacy Access Partnership works to:

  • Develop and facilitate new policies
  • Advance new practices in pharmacies and clinics
  • Create more educational opportunities for consumers in pharmacies
  • Promote greater public awareness.

Through evidence-based research, advocacy and new program development, Pharmacy Access Partnership provides state and national leadership to advance innovative policies and practices.

Our work is driven by our social justice values that promote a healthcare system where reproductive health is considered basic human right.

Pharmacy Access Partnership is foundation-supported and guided by a wide Circle of Advisors. Our Advisors draw experience from private, nonprofit, corporate, government, professional, and academic settings.
