Welcome!

The Texas Women’s Healthcare Coalition is a coalition of organizations promoting access to preventive healthcare for all Texas women.  TWHC is working toward the vision of a state where every woman has access to the preventive and preconception care that will help her stay healthy and prepare for healthy, planned pregnancies.

TWHC urges Texas lawmakers to increase funding for women’s preventive healthcare in the 84th Legislative Session.  Read our October 2014 fact sheet to learn more:
