Public Health Solutions started this petition to Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and

Public Health Solutions (PHS) Sexual and Reproductive Health Centers provide essential health services in Brooklyn, NY.  We need your help.  Recently, critical funding was removed in the NYS Executive budget, resulting in an unexpected cut of $1.8 million for our Centers.  Without this funding, we will be forced to close.  Thousands of people will be in danger of losing services from a trusted community health provider that has been in operation for over 55 years.

Our Centers primarily serve women of color, many of whom would not be able to get personalized, patient-centered, compassionate, and free or low-cost health care services elsewhere. We provide prenatal care, gynecological services, and contraceptive counseling and management, as well as health education and social work services. We know that women of color are disproportionately affected by adverse sexual and reproductive health care outcomes.  It is our mission to provide equitable care for our patients and community.  Do not let us close!

Please sign our petition to urge Governor Cuomo and the NY State Legislature to immediately restore the $4.6 million in funding to sexual and reproductive health care providers, including $1.8 million in funding for Public Health Solutions' centers, to ensure continued access to these critical services.
